Wholesaler AG Parfetts has revealed its target of reaching 1,000 symbol stores is “now well within reach”.

In the results released last month, Parfetts director David Grimes said: “Interest in Go Local fascias continues to come from outside our historical catchment area. Go Local Direct, the delivery service operating from our Sheffield branch, continues to grow and is making a significant contribution to company turnover, while the extension of the service to our Somercotes branch is progressing well.

“The delivered operations running from our Aintree and Middlesborough depots are both showing excellent incremental sales growth.”
