Sourced Locally Fortnight

Since we launched our Sourced Locally initiative back in 2007, it has gone from strength to strength. From sole traders to large businesses who export their products internationally, we are extremely proud to work in partnership with more than 100 local suppliers who stock our stores with thousands of different products.

We are proud to say that on our 12 year anniversary, we have successfully ploughed millions of pounds back into the regional economy, creating and protecting over 400 local jobs.
