Budgens will open its third concept store in Crouch End next week – the first of its kind in London.
Musgrave managing director Peter Ridler and Budgens’ director Mike Baker(pictured) will open the 8,600sq ft outlet at 9.00am on Thursday 26th March 2015 following a five week closure for a complete refit and refurbishment.
Budgens director, Mike Baker said: “Budgens of Crouch End will be our flagship store and builds on everything we have learned from our highly successful lab store in Bournemouth. Once again we are building on our customers’ key shopping missions of lunch, meal for tonight and top-up. We’ve added more food to go – including hot porridge and soups – and a greater selection of fresh, local and artisan products. Once the store opens I look forward to welcoming existing and potential new retailers in to see where we’re going with the brand.”
The store will also boast several brand new features including a hot porridge bar, a hot soup bar, salad bar, grind-your-own coffee beans offering seven different varieties and an in-store patisserie section.
