Helping a sustainable retailer to expand

Company Shop is the UK’s largest redistributor of surplus food and household products. The company buys and sells surplus stock from retailers and manufacturers, which would have otherwise gone to waste, passing on significant discounts to its members. Company Shop’s entire business model is built around sustainability and minimising food waste. And, with funding from Lloyds Banking Group, the retailer opened its first North East store last year and plans to open five more over the next two years.

The road’s easy access will also hopefully lead to attracting more customers to our huge new store and coffee house.”

Royce Clark, Managing Director, Grampian Furnishers Limited.
