Destination Glenfield - Week 6

Posted by Nathan Lloyd | 18/02/2016 | Category: Community


Our Glenfield supermarket continues it's amazing transformation.

Over the 12 weeks of the development we will making some exciting changes to the Glenfield store to deliver a greater variety and new shopping choices for our customers.

Ruth Preston, Store Manager, and her team, will be giving you an update every week on how the changes are progressing.

It's week 6 of the exciting development and we chat to Darren, a team leader at the store. "Here at #DestinationGlenfield this week we've seen Phase Two landed in great style by the whole team. Monday morning was the 'Big Reveal' , when our customers saw the result of all the hard work and investment that has gone into the new part of our store.

All the latest additions are in place. This includes Pick Of The Crop produce, an enhanced Delicatessen offering complimented by salad and pizza bars, and also fresh fish. We now have Hot Food To Go and fresh baguettes made in store.

We have had some fantastic customer feedback regarding the new products on the deli, and these should prove very popular. There has been some great support from a number of different areas of the business which has made it all possible. Our colleagues are learning lots of different skills on the new product areas, and showing great enthusiasm towards them.

For the next two weeks, we are offering a £3 saving on a £20 spend via a coupon redemption until the 28th of February. This should hopefully encourage customers to return to our store once they have tried it for the first time. This weekend also brings Colleague Double Discount on Friday and Saturday, so we are all looking forward to what we hope will be a 'Big Weekend'.

Work has now begun on Phase Three of the transformation, which will be completed ready for launch on April 8th. Our concessions will then be on site, including M &Co, Co-operative Electrical, Rectella Luggage, Brantano, Julian Charles Furnishings and also retaining the existing Dorothy Perkins franchise.

It really has been a fantastic effort so far from all involved, and we are all very proud of what has been achieved up to this point."
