Andrew King has joined retail symbol group Select & Save as managing director.

Until recently, King was franchise director at One Stop, responsible for driving and developing the franchise format in the UK. Prior to that, he was on the board at Costcutter.

Select & Save founder Kam Sanghera said: “I have known Andrew for over 10 years both as a fellow retailer but more importantly a good friend. Andrew’s track record in retail is second to none and his appointment brings a wealth of expertise and immense knowledge to the business as we look to propel it forward in the coming months.

“The Select & Save brand has become a major player in the convenience symbol sector and we are extremely proud of our track record. But we are looking to the future as Convenience is the place to be as consumers’ shopping patterns continue to evolve with local stores fast becoming the destination of choice. We are committed to helping our current members take advantage of this shift and bring new retailers into the fold who want to develop their businesses to meet these needs.

“A major part of achieving our goals will be to set out a vision for the future both in terms of our overall growth and how we can help members stand out from the convenience crowd. Our experience, coupled with Andrew’s unrivalled strategic thinking and vast expertise in convenience, gives us a fantastic opportunity to ensure our stores meet – and exceed – the demands of shoppers now and in the future.”

Select & Save is committed to “redefining” independent retailing to ensure that operators succeed despite the increasingly unstable marketplace. The group is currently negotiating a new supply deal, having been supplied by Nisa for over 15 years.

  • Costcutter is the place to be and though Andrew was there at one stage he will know it is the destination to head for again.

    As mentioned by other writers, Carlyle private equity is actively sourcing distribution for Amazon, the Discounters are on a roll and Brexit could bring cheap food to the customer. The Supermarkets are not asleep either.

    Costcutter - Costcutter. Watch the name. N

  • Looks like something big is about to happen in convenience once again, is simply fresh going with one stop....?? Or maybe they are preparing for a costcutter, Nisa, ph, coop alliance....!??


    Or it could be Amazon spreading its wings.....

    I've asked this before but what is your affiliation with Costcutter? In the years I have read this site I have seen numerous comments from you that are all in praise of Costcutter and critical of anyone who disagreed.

    I am not bothered in the sense of it affecting me personally but you do come across as either a PR department or someone with a vested interest in Costcutter (The place to be, to use a repeat quote of yours)
