Scottish wholesaler CJ Lang & Son is hailing the success of a new Click & Collect service aimed at providing trade customers with a full ambient and selected chilled range.
The Click & Collect service has been in operation since 10 June and CJ Lang is now looking to add more products over the next few weeks, as well as opening up the service to retailers outside of the Spar symbol group.
Operating from its 180,000sqft distribution centre in Dundee, the wholesaler provides the Click & Collect service seven days a week. Orders placed via the company’s website before 2.30pm are available for collection by 6pm the same day, with later orders available the following day.
Colin McLean, ceo at CJ Lang & Son Ltd, said: “During the pandemic, we have been in a fortunate position to be able to continue supplying our independent Spar retailers with what they needed to provide communities with essential items on a daily basis.
“Our distribution team has been doing a phenomenal job and also provided a number of retail businesses outside of the Spar network with product over the past 12 weeks. As a result we felt we could expand on this service and provide not only our existing independent Spar retailers with a click and collect service but also allow other retail trade customers the opportunity to order and collect from our depot in Dundee.
“We are doing all we can to support independent retailing in Scotland and as we work with a growing number of Scottish, UK and international suppliers, we have the ability to offer retail businesses an extensive product range.”
CJ Lang distributes to over 300 independent and company-owned Spar stores across Scotland.
