You said you are 70% satisfied with the overall service!

Thank you to all our customers who completed the annual survey. Some highlights from the survey include:

  • You said you were 70% satisfied with the overall service
  • You said value for money is most important to you
  • You said you want to see improvements in freshness and quality
  • You said you rate our staff / service very highly
  • You said you want to see improvements in the product range

We have already started to implement some great changes based on some of your suggestions. We have developed an action plan focusing on the areas which you identified as being most important to you and where we received the lowest satisfaction scores.

Price increase notification

The cost of food and drink has increased considerably and it is down to factors that are out of our control, such as:

  • Rising oil prices
  • Energy costs
  • Increased VAT
  • Climate change
  • Rising cost of fertiliser
  • Change in eating habits

Regrettably this has meant we have had to review some of our prices. However, we still believe we offer great value for money compared to some of your high street favourites.
