Budgens has been running three spectacular fruit promotions over the last fortnight and as a result punnet sales have reached almost 300,000 for the three products over the two week period.
These leading deals in the High Street included Budgens English strawberries, 454g on sale at half price, £1.99, and when customers purchased a punnet they also received a pot of Budgens Double Cream, 150g, absolutely free; plus 250g punnets of Budgens cherries and 500g punnets of Budgens seedless grapes were on offer for just £1.
Total fruit sales for Budgens over the last fortnight were up over 26 per cent year on year and more than 25 per cent ahead of forecast sales.
Says Phil Smith, Budgens Managing Director: “We know that customers are looking for value and Budgens is committed to supporting its retail partners, enabling them to deliver excellent value to shoppers. These figures prove the quality of both Budgens own brand products and the seasonal promotions on offer in our stores.”
