Bestway’s Abbey Road depot in Park Royal London celebrated its 30th anniversary last week with a bumper trade day for customers and suppliers.
The site, which also houses the group’s UK head office, was a hub of activity as customers flooded the car park and depot to take advantage of anniversary deals. The event was also supported by grocery, impulse and alcohol suppliers with promotions, giveaways and competitions.
Younus Sheikh, managing director of Bestway Wholesale commented: “The day was fantastic, not just in terms of celebrating the milestone of 30 years trading, but also as a spectacle with retailers coming from far and wide. It was like a throwback to the good old days, before delivered wholesale, when all retailers came into depot and trolleys were stacked high and wide.”
The Abbey Road depot is a top five performing depot in the total Bestway Batleys estate and the anniversary trade day broke the record for a single days takings in the depot this year, with sales exceeding £1.2m on the day.
