Blakemore has unveiled a new food to go concept at its Spar store in Aberystwyth.
The 2,910sq ft store features a brand-new food-to-go concept called ‘Eat Some…’ that is inspired by street food vendors. The new food brands include The Grill, WhirlyBird, Prego!, Oh So Toastie, Shake Waffle & Stroll and Soup & Spuds, which are exclusively owned by A.F. Blakemore.
The store also includes a fresh fruit juicing service, sandwiches made daily in-store from dailyDeli, fresh coffee and sweets treats from Philpotts, a fresh meat range from County Bridge and an increased range of chilled foods, fresh produce and flowers.
This is the first ‘Eat Some…’ store to open in the UK and is designed to provide a food to go option to cater to all tastes.
At the re-opening of the store, Blakemore retail managing director Matt Teague said: “We are very excited to be opening our newly refurbished Spar store in Aberystwyth. We know the local community will enjoy the exciting new additions to the store.
“Our ‘Eat Some…’ food-to-go concept offers shoppers a breadth of solutions catering for all tastes. We are sure the increased range of fresh foods in the store will also be a big hit.
“The addition of ‘Eat Some…’ gives us the opportunity to create a new and exciting way to give the shoppers of Aberystwyth tasty food-to-go options. The Grill, WhirlyBird, Prego!, Oh So Toastie, Shake Waffle & Stroll and Soup & Spuds are all really exciting new brands for us to work with. We know they are going to be a roaring success with our shoppers.”
Spar Aberystwyth store manager Mike Grasham added: “Our team have worked really hard to offer the local community a fantastic new and exciting store. We have always worked hard to deliver great customer service.
