After five years of going into administration, Kwik Save is back on Britain’s highstreets.
The first new store in the country which was *fitted out by the Jordon Group* is in the village of Little Lever, Bolton, Greater Manchester, after the brand was bought by budget supermarket group, Costcutter.
The move follows the booming trade of discount retailers as cash-strapped families seek bargains during the economic downturn.
Following Little Lever’s success, the first Kwik Save store in Wales opened its doors for trade on 29th June 2013 creating 16 part time jobs and transforming the empty Westcoast Gym site.
Owner Darren Briggs, who runs Dragon Service Stations Ltd and set up Dragon Retail especially for the Kwik Save project said:
I’d like to think this will be the start of the regeneration of Charles Street Milford Haven. Something is desperately needed in the high streets in Wales, and being from Milford, I wanted the first Kwik Save to be here.
Darren also comments: “We have a great range to compete with Home Bargains, and a value range which has never been done before in Kwik Save. We want to offer people of Milford Haven another opportunity to use a local company, which will mean money is reinvested back into the local economy. And I’d like to think it will attract more people back into the high street – there’s no reason why that can’t happen.”
He added: “It’s all about transcending the service over and above what other hypermarkets do. One thing I can guarantee is that our service will be better, because we are a local company.”
The store will also offer a You Shop We Drop and a Dragon Rewards scheme.
*All shopfitting work was completed on time and within budget by the Jordon Group.*
