Here at McColl’s we pride ourselves on being the UK market leader in neighbourhood retailing. We currently operate over 1,350 convenience and newsagent stores. We’ve more than doubled our convenience store presence over the last eight years and this now accounts for over half of our impressive estate, with a strong focus on developing and expanding this further.
Our strategy is based on providing local communities with a full range of amenities, top brands and neighbourhood services at competitive prices. The convenience side of our business is where we see significant opportunity for growth, both for our customers and our staff. Growth will be supported by the acquisition of further quality independent convenience stores as well as by converting our existing newsagent stores to convenience format. We will work to improve the customer offer across our convenience store portfolio, particularly in terms of fresh and chilled produce.
We also plan to expand the range and services in our newsagents and variety stores to cater for changing consumer needs, such as increasing the number of Post Offices we operate. Significant investment has already been made to improve store standards and the customer experience.
We are acutely aware that our continued success depends entirely on the dedication, expertise and customer service skills of our staff and management. We are always keen to hear from like minded people who share our commitment to neighbourhood retailing and to developing a career in this exciting retail sector.
