Lifestyle Express Newhouse Mini Market, Kilbirnie, North Ayrshire
My store was nearly a Network Transformation casualty but my community fought back. I’ve rebuilt my business by doubling my store size, adding local ales, running my own great deals and offering a book loan service.
We knew fresh and chilled was the future for our business and built our store around it. Our foodservice counter, fresh fruit and veg, local cakes and huge chilled range help us make over £25,000 a week.
We bought our first store at 18 and have built a £3.9m business transforming underperforming stores. Pricemarked £1 pies from a nearby firm are just one product that locals love in our Torry store – we sell more than 60 a week.
We become a bit of a Christmas shop in winter and customers travel for miles to buy our quality decorations, boxed cards and paper. And beating WH Smiths’ prices by 10% keeps them shopping here all year round.
