Blakemore Retail has opened a new Spar convenience store in Aldridge, Walsall – its first to feature digital menu boards and one of the first to feature a Daily Deli fresh cream counter.

The 2,480 sq ft outlet is on the site of a former pub, the Lime Kilns, on Northgate Road, and incorporates Spar’s Daily Deli food service counter.

This serves full English breakfasts, hot triple-decker sandwiches, a range of freshly prepared sandwiches, subs, flatbreads, salads, toasties, flame-grilled burgers and jacket potatoes, and hot meals including chilli con carne, chicken curry, cottage pie, lasagne, steak and ale pie, according to the time of day.

The store also has a self-service Costa Coffee machine with digital touch screen. It has a defibrillator outside for emergencies.

Blakemore Retail regional manager Gareth James said: “This is a fantastic new store designed especially to optimise customers’ shopping missions for ‘food now’ and ‘food for later’.

“Situated on a busy main road within a residential and industrial area, our convenience and Daily Deli food-to-go offer is perfectly placed to attract nearby residents, local workers and commuters.”
