This forecourt store opened in September 2016 and is owned by James Hall company division G&E Murgatroyd. The focal point of the store is it’s incredibly popular butchery counter with an in-store chef who creates and sells 1,000 ready meals a week. The store gets surprisingly high sales of fresh, chilled and wine products as people enjoy buying their full dinner solution in the store.
With Southport being where the James Hall business was founded, the store makes great use of this historic connection. Aisles are named after local street names, a timeline history of the James Hall business is up behind the counters, black and white photos around the store show different landmarks in the area and information boards provide facts about the town’s history.
