Our mobile store for new Wirksworth site

Posted by Andrew Fouracre | 08/04/2013 | Category: Retail Food

The end of March saw the opening of our latest store and fuel station in Wirksworth in Derbshire. We had acquired the site from another organisation and had to temporarily close for rebranding and refurbishment.

During the closure, we still wanted to offer the local residents somewhere to buy essential groceries, so we set up shop using one of our promotional vehicles! We battled the snow and sub zero temperatures to get the site ready. The large vehicle built by Leicester Carriage Builders (part of our transport business) was perfect for a mobile shop – although it was small, we had a chilling cabinet, magazine and newspaper racks and shelving full of food items! 

Thanks to everyone who visited and supported our mobile shop. The enhanced store and fuel station is now open but look out for our promotional vehicle in future store openings and events!
