Blakemore Retail Launches New Flagship Store in North Wales

August 24, 2020


Blakemore Retail has launched a brand-new flagship SPAR store in Bodelwyddan, North Wales.

The business has relocated its store in the town to a purpose-built site on Abergele Road, just off Junction 25 of the A55, the main gateway to Snowdonia and the North Wales coast.

The 232m2 store, which opened its doors on 21st August, features a Subway counter serving fresh sub sandwiches, a cake counter and a Daily Deli hot food counter offering carvery meats such as hot pork and beef.

With 33% more shop-floor space than the old site, the store also offers an increased cold Daily Deli range and far broader selection of fresh food, providing customers with the perfect solution for their evening meal.  

Post Office services are provided via a dedicated Post Office serving point during the store’s opening hours.

For additional convenience, customers can place home delivery orders with the store via the Snappy Shopper app, getting groceries or a Subway delivered straight to their door within an hour. 

Blakemore Retail Area Manager Colin Davies commented: “This is a brand-new purpose-built flagship store in a prime location, ideally positioned to serve local people, the county hospital and traffic passing on the A55 – the busiest highway in North Wales.  

“The Subway, new Daily Deli offering and Post Office services will make the store a real destination for the local community.”

A defibrillator has been fitted to the store’s exterior, for anyone in the local area to use in an emergency.

Blakemore Retail Managing Director Matt Teague commented: “The new site has involved significant investment from A.F. Blakemore and is part of an ongoing store development programme planned for our retail estate.

“We are committed to growing the business in ways that are profitable and sustainable for the benefit of our colleagues, customers and communities.

“Blakemore Retail has played a key role providing essential services to local communities in recent months, and I am confident that SPAR Bodelwyddan’s in-store and home delivery services will bring many benefits to the town.”
