Today is Yorkshire Day
From soaring peaks and rugged moors, to coastal towns and bustling cities, Yorkshire has got it all. It was named European Destination of the Year at the World Travel Awards in 2013 and has its own day, which falls on 1 August every year.
We’ll have opened nine new shops in Yorkshire by the end of the year, in places like York, Keighley, Harrogate and Leeds. This is part of a wider commitment to open 100 stores in 2016 and more than 100 next year, more than any other food retailer.
Local products for local people
Last year we announced a local supplier initiative that would see us stock 130 products from 50 local suppliers in our stores in Yorkshire. These include everything from bread and eggs, to chutney and pies.
We’re looking for new sites
If you have a freehold or leasehold site for a store of up to 10,000 sq ft gross, or an existing business with a net sales area of over 1,500 sq ft, get in touch with Mike Harrison, our Acquisitions Manager for Yorkshire, on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07702 971 688. More information about our requirements can be found on our website.
