Parfetts Cash Carry has launched its largest Local 4U store at Bulwell in Nottingham.
The store is a 2,000sq ft development from an old video store, with a 500sq ft area for a franchise with a fast food chain.
It is the first original store for Parfetts as the previous Local 4U stores have all been conversions of existing convenience stores.
Richard Mason, the operations manager responsible for the roll-out, said: “This was a new challenge for the team, as it is our first store that we have developed from scratch, without having an existing store and customer base to build from. The store has been developed with the local community in mind.”
This is the sixth company-owned Local 4U store and Parfetts says it is on track for its target of eight company-owned stores by early 2009.
