Retailers and Senior Leaders Say Thank You Blakemore Colleagues

May 14, 2020

Three of A.F. Blakemore's senior directors have collaborated with retailers to say a massive thank you to AFB colleagues who’ve been keeping the business going during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Blakemore Retail Managing Director Matt Teague, Blakemore Trade Partners Sales Director Louis Drake and Blakemore Wholesale Distribution Managing Director James Russell have filmed this short video with retailers from across the company's SPAR estate to recognise everyone's efforts: 

Thank you!

Over recent weeks the support, commitment, team spirit and customer service delivered by our colleagues has been outstanding.

Much has been said about our role in “keeping the nation fed” but every single person throughout our supply chain has played their role in ensuring that we have been able to deliver stock to our customers, meaning we’ve been able to provide an invaluable service to the communities in which we operate. 

Your hard work has meant that we have been able to supply the most vulnerable members of our community with the food and supplies they need, as well as enabling many of our customers to stay local and support their local stores.

So quite simply, we and our customers would like to say thank you!


Stay safe,

Matt Teague, Louis Drake and James Russell
