Captain Jack Sparrow was firmly on board to help celebrate the opening of Brighton’s newest independent convenience store just before Christmas.
The former Threshers store on Queens Road has undergone a complete refurbishment and has been redeveloped to the latest Londis standards. Employing five local people, it’s the only convenience store in the area and since opening the doors business has been brisk.
Shop owner, Cenk Daldeniz approached Londis because he’s new to convenience retailing and was looking for a partner that could help guide him through the opening process and then continue to advise him how to offer the best products and service to local residents.
Cenk said: “It’s been great working with Londis, it’s a real partnership and they have been with me every step of the way. Londis is such a recognised brand I feel really proud to be able to display the green sign above my door, but more importantly my customers love the shop and range of products on offer too.“
Cenk, who owns a number of retail outlets in Brighton, selling mainly wines and spirits has been so impressed with Londis that he’s already converted one of his existing shops in Preston Park to a Londis and is in discussions to convert a third.
The shop is open everyday from 7.30am to 11.30pm and boasts a range of fresh and grocery products at prices to suit every shopper’s budget. The shop also stocks a good selection of wines and spirits, which are available online through www.winemeup.co.uk.
