After 18 months of development, Spar retailer Paul Stone has opened his latest store, a 2,000 sq ft food to go-focused outlet on Manchester’s bustling Charles Street.

In addition to a wide range of hot and cold food to go options, including soups and porridge, the store also features the new Clayton Park Deli, a heat and eat concept from Spar distributor James Hall.

There is also smart wooden seating for up to 10 customers and free wi-fi. 

In the grocery aisles, a quality range of fresh and chilled produce is also on offer, with much of the range kept behind smart-energy saving chiller doors. 

Paul, who operates nine stores in the Manchester area, was named Retailer’s Retailer of the Year at the 2017 Convenience Retail Awards.
