Blakemore Retail has opened a new Spar store in Staffordshire, featuring a wide range of food-to-go options including Subway’s new Fresh Forward format.

Located on the site of a former Co-op in Burntwood, the 3,000sq ft store is the second across the Blakemore Retail estate to include Subway’s new format, which features digital menu boards and a sleeker design, streamlining the ordering process for customers.

The store also includes hot food to go and freshly-made baguettes from the Daily Deli range, as well as a Costa Coffee machine and Spar Tonight’s Tea range.

The store has been fitted with energy-saving LED lighting throughout as well as chilled cabinets, which are also designed to conserve energy.

Blakemore area manager Mark Bostock said: “The new Burntwood store is a fantastic addition to the Blakemore Retail estate. The new Fresh Forward concept from Subway adds a bright and refreshing touch.

“Burntwood Spar has an extensive selection of fresh foods and grocery items, so it will be a real destination for the local community.

“We are really excited to be trading in Burntwood and would like to welcome all customers back to experience their new Spar store!”

Blakemore Retail owns 281 Spar stores across England and Wales.
