CALLINGTON REDEVELOPMENT CREATES FLAGSHIP SPAR STORE

SPAR South West Flagship Store

A major redevelopment of the SPAR convenience store in Fore Street, Callington has created a flagship store in the south west for operators Gillett's Callington Ltd..

The 2,200 sq.ft. store has undergone a total refurbishment programme in a co-investment project with Appleby Westward, opening its doors to customers again with a completely new look.

The Post Office opposite the store has moved into the newly refurbished SPAR store, offering extended opening hours for customers, and convenience shopping has been made easier with a completely new internal layout. The store has a completely new frontage, windows, flooring and total re-design throughout.

The butchery section, serving locally-sourced meat, has moved to the front of the store, offering the latest in contemporary butchery, with the ability to supply 30 day aged locally-sourced beef. Fresh produce and chilled foods are positioned centrally, along with a newly-branded foodservice section. The off licence has moved to the side of the store, and top-up grocery items are available towards the rear, where the Post Office is now located.

Gillett's Callington Ltd. operates more than 60 SPAR stores throughout the south west. It was the first store the Gillett family bought when they moved from farming in Lancashire into convenience retailing in Cornwall more than 30 years ago, providing the springboard for their future store acquisition programme.

Managing Director Mark Gillett said: "It was the success of the Callington store in the first place that gave us the confidence and provided the foundations for the growth of our family business.

"We recognised that our Callington store needed investment and the work we have undertaken has created a stunning state-of-the-art next generation SPAR store. We are very excited about the development, which offers the very latest in convenience shopping to the people of Callington."

Director Alan Cookson added: "The family and everyone in the business are very excited about the development of our flagship store. The incorporation of the Post Office in store is a tremendous benefit to Callington people as it is open from 7.00am until we close at 11.00pm, offering everything from postal services to the latest in banking.

"Our modern, new frontage gives the high street a completely new look while internally, the new layout has been carefully planned and designed to ensure we give customers what they want with an easy convenience shopping experience."
