Guy Warner teams up with Morrisons

Here at The Jordon Group, we are delighted to have delivered Guy Warner’s latest Upton-Upon-Severn site in Worcestershire, which saw Morrisons partner with the award-winning retailer to create a new dual-branded concept store. ‘Together With Morrisons’ is a partnership for larger convenience stores over 3,000sq ft, which sees them champion local products, as well as carrying Morrisons’ own brand.

“Upton-Upon-Severn is an entirely new brand proposition,” explains Guy. “The work that’s gone in on the brand, the customer journey, the components of the look and the feel of the store are all brand new and have taken a lot of time to come together.”

Fresh produce is a major focus, as are beers, wines and spirits. He claims that fresh foods is a core part of the offer and that local food is at the pinnacle of that. He is working with 71 local producers and the shop boasts over 700 local lines.

Another focal point is the store’s food to go offer. “Within this store we’ve got a serve over food to go proposition and a drinks bar,” says Guy. “We’ve pedalled our own ship on carbonated slush and coffee and brought those all under our own [Warner’s] brand because we felt if we’re going to actually embrace the brand then why wouldn’t you want to bring under that brand the USPs of what you do, rather than immediately inserting other brands.”

Guy has embraced new technology at the new store. “There are a few technological things we’ve done to try to make the operation more efficient, both for us and the consumer,” he says. “We’ve put ESELs [electronic shelf edge labels] into the store, which is a new thing for us and represents a substantial investment,” he says. “We also have a lot of media screens in the store.”
The store has an extensive solar panel installation on the roof. “It was always a good return on investment case, but since we made the decision to do it, energy prices have doubled, so it’s become doubly compelling!” says Guy.

He claims that the town was “crying out for a store” and he wanted his store to become a destination outlet. “There genuinely was a challenge to do a shop there,” he says. “It’s very early days, but seeing the customer reaction in the first week, I think that what we’ve put forward is going to do all the things we want it to because there have been a lot of trolleys going around the store”.

We would like to wish Guy and the team the very best of luck with the new concept store and thank them for choosing us as their shopfitting specialists.

Ultimate Products Headquarters Refit

Chadderton-based Ultimate Products, the owner, manager, designer and developer of an extensive range of value-focused consumer goods brands, has recently invested £1.8 million in transforming the fourth floor of its headquarters.

Of this, more than £1m is being spent with Oldham companies, and The Jordon Group are honored to have been one of them.

The expansion at the Manor Mill on Victoria Street will see office capacity grow and bringing additional employment opportunities to Greater Manchester, specifically the local Oldham area.

Existing employees will benefit from an improved working environment, focusing on increasing natural light, space and zoned workspaces that suit the fast-paced and innovative nature of the business.

We’re sure you’ll agree the new headquarters look absolutely phenomenal and we would like to thank Ultimate Products for giving us the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful transformation.

SPAR Petrol Forecourt Install Heat Recovery System to provide free hot water for COSTA and SUBWAY 

A SPAR petrol forecourt in Leicester which we have recently fitted-out has installed a Heat Recovery system connected to a Daikin CVP system. The system provides all the hot water needs for the busy SUBWAY and COSTA outlets in addition to the rest and staff facilities. The system is the smallest one we supply and has a 50-litre storage capacity with a 3kW internal heat exchanger which can recharge the tank every 50 minutes. The heat exchanger is double twin wall design which ensures that even in a failure situation that the refrigerant and water can never come into contact with one another. This is a legal requirement under EN1717 for any business handling food. The system is simplicity itself, maintenance free, having no moving parts it is highly efficient due to the innovative design of the heat exchangers that can remove up to 100% of the energy produced by the refrigeration plant. The system was fitted with an optional heat meter that monitors the real time hot water usage giving SPAR accurate details of the cost savings the system is delivering.
The annual energy saving for providing the 384,000 litre of free hot water is over 18,600 kWh.

The annual cost saving is over £2000 per annum giving a payback of under two years.

SPAR can now also boast a reduction in its carbon footprint of 10 tonnes of carbon a year.

The Jordon Group can supply and install Heat Recovery Systems for any working environment which will provide free hot water and huge energy reductions. For more information or a free site survey and quotation, contact us today!

The business is now firmly within the top 10 independent forecourt operators in the UK at number seven and the target is to turn the Ascona Group into a top three provider within the next three to five years, can we just take a minute to celebrate this! The newly updated Green Garage Service Station is now more great than ever and features a Nisa Local including F’real milkshakes, Tango Ice Blast, Costa Coffee; an on site Launderette AND a Fish Bar with online ordering!

Nisa, Highlands of Royston

Well-known and successful forecourt retailer the Highland Group has signed a deal to be supplied by Nisa Retail.

The group, run by father and son team Steve and Tom Highland, agreed terms and commenced trading with Nisa in April, at the height of the Covid-19 crisis.

The group, which currently operates four forecourts, has initially moved its business in Royston, Herts, across to Nisa and the store has been converted to Nisa’s Evolution format and fascia.

Highlands of Royston, Greenfields Service Station operates on the A505 dual carriageway. The site has recently been extended and renovated by the Jordon Group, to 2,000 sq.ft. In addition to the new store which offers a far superior range of food to go and essentials, a new in store bakery has been fitted. This, along with the new Nisa partnership allows them to support all the local villages as well as the commuters using the A505.

Tom Highland believes the addition of the new extended range available through Nisa, including access to more than 2,000 Co-op own brand products, will take the store to the next level.

Tom said: “Having such a vast range of own-brand products with a strong name that people know and trust, has helped us grow the shop sales not only in areas where we were already strong, but also in new areas such as fresh produce where we have struggled in the past.”

Since expanding the shop and enhancing the range in the Royston store, sales have increased by 100% with plans for further growth as shoppers become increasingly aware of the improved offer available instore.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Highland Group for choosing us as their fit-out contractors and wish them the very best with the new venture!
