The fifth Company Shop superstore is opening in St Helens! 

Our St Helens store, situated on the Lancots Lane Industrial Estate in Sutton Fold, will open its doors in January 2018. The store will create 30 full time jobs, some of which have already been recruited for and training commenced.

The opening of this new store will allow us to redistribute even more surplus product, and stop even more good food from going to waste. The Liverpool City Region was identified as a target area for expansion. With a thriving food and manufacturing sector, there is a clear need for a new redistribution solution for businesses across the North West and into North Wales. Alongside the new Company Shop superstore there are also plans to deliver up to five Community Shops in the North West over the next two to three years. 

Speaking about the planned expansion Founder and Chairman of Company Shop and Community Shop, John Marren, said:
 
“We were overwhelmed by the support from the food industry and local politicians at our food summit this week. 
 
We have always been motivated to be different and to make a difference and we are excited to bring our model to the Liverpool City Region. 
 
Working with manufacturers and retailers we are gearing up to step up to the two big challenges of food waste and food poverty across the North West.”

Get in touch today to find out how you can support the new store, and how you can work with us to stop good food from going to waste.
