Costcutter opens up new Yorkshire pop-up shop to provide essential items
A national convenience store chain has opened a new pop-up shop in a Yorkshire village to provide residents access to essential items.
Costcutter has opened a new pop-up shop in the village of Fangfoss, while its nearby permanent store undergoes refurbishments.
The company has worked with portable retail specialist Rapid Retail to deploy the pop-up shop, which is fully branded and fitted out in line with the group’s existing stores.
Three new staff members have been appointed to help run the store.
The pop-up store will also offer home delivery on orders for elderly and vulnerable customers, working alongside Fangfoss Parish Council.
Mike Hollis, retail director at Costcutter, commented: “The pop-up shop proved to be a really valuable resource for the Dunnington community and now that our newly-refurbished York Street store has reopened its doors, we have moved the pop-up shop to a new area which is very much in need of a convenience provision to help local people get their everyday essentials.
“The Fangfoss pop-up will provide a vital shopping service for the local community and our team are working hard to ensure that elderly and vulnerable customers are able to benefit from the store, with home deliveries where possible and allocated timeslots through the week.”
Pamela Broughton, who is co-ordinating the village volunteer support group, added: “The village is very excited about having the pop-up shop here. At this difficult time it is a tremendous boost that people can buy locally and minimise the risk.
“We have a large volunteer group supported by the Parish Council and St Martin’s Church and we are all very appreciative of the efforts that Costcutter have gone to to get the shop open and we are delighted to welcome them to the village.”
