Gilletts Store Gets A New Look

A huge boost to the chilled offer has been one of the key benefits following a major transformation to the SPAR store in Kings Ash Road, Paignton.

The store, owned by Gilletts Callington Ltd., is on the Paignton to Torquay bypass and was closed for two weeks while a 600 sq. ft. extension was added and a substantial refurbishment undertaken.

Managing Director Mark Gillett said: “The store is one of our oldest – it was the fourth one we acquired 24 years ago. It has been earmarked for a long time for major refit works and after the success of a very similar project at Sidford we decided the time was right to bring it right up to date and make it one of the best SPAR stores in the South West.

“We used the very latest equipment in the fitting of the store and can now offer all our customers the very best in fresh produce, fresh meat and dairy after adding more than 15 metres of refrigerated display area. This, coupled with the addition of a new food-to-go area, offering freshly made sandwiches and baguettes, hot bacon and sausage baps, will be a big hit with both local customers and holidaymakers who use the store when visiting the Torbay area.”

A new shop front with electronic doors has made the store much more light, modern and accessible and the store has had its range extended by more than 1,000 new products to satisfy both the local community and the large influx of holidaymakers that flock to Torbay every year. Coffee Nation bean to cup coffee is available and an off licence is also a strong feature of the store.
