My One Stop story 

Naresh Gajri
One Stop Cranhill,
Glasgow

“I’ve got a 3,200sq ft store and it was always a challenge to get enough products from my local cash and carry – I’d end up with 10 lines of one product just to make the store look full. But with One Stop, I can choose from a very large range of products. 

“They’ve particularly helped with my fresh and chilled range, hugely boosting the variety I offer. Previously, when I was with a different symbol group, I was going through 40 or 50 cases of fresh and chilled a week; now I go through 400 cases – sales have increased tenfold.  

“One Stop-brand ready meals are selling very well; fresh fruit and vegetables are really popular, too – they’re great quality, just like Tesco. Over the next year, we’re going to focus on growing food to go. We installed a Stacked sandwich bar on 9 December. I plan to use social media, especially Facebook, to try to drive sales.”


How we helped

Jim Carroll
Business development manager, One Stop

“We aim to deliver the benefits of multiple retail to independent stores, combining nationwide back-up, support and structure with flexibility and rootedness in the local community. We’re not a wholesaler, trying to sell retailers our products; we’re a retailer, providing guidance on ranging, promotions and the whole management of other retailers’ businesses. 

“The market is ever-changing, and lots of independents are facing challenges through the year ahead, with Brexit and other uncertainties. One Stop is ready to work with retailers to navigate this.”
