As “Bishy” Road officially turns on its Christmas lights this Saturday, York shoppers will also be treated to a day of family fun at the unveiling of the new-look Costcutter convenience store.
The family run Costcutter store which has been situated on Bishopthorpe Road for over 20 years, has undergone a major refit as part of a national brand transformation programme for Costcutter in the UK, and local shoppers are being invited to a day of festive family fun and food to see the results for themselves.
“We’re delighted with our new store and can’t wait to see the reaction of our shoppers,” said store owner, Jamie Davison.
“We’ll be introducing an extensive range of convenience products and services including more chilled and fresh produce, an extended beer, wine and spirits offer including specialist gins and craft ales, Slush drinks, Lavazza coffee-to-go, along with a comprehensive range of Yorkshire sourced produce, including fresh meat, dairy, local ales, bread and fresh cream cakes – all showcasing the best of Yorkshire.
“The store has been redesigned to truly identify the needs of the local community and to offer not just the products they want, but a fantastic shopping experience.
“As one of the first wave of new-look Costcutter stores, we’re really looking forward to wowing customers with our fresh look and feel and we hope to welcome as many people as possible to our launch on Saturday.”
Saturday’s launch event will run from 10am to 5pm as part of Bishopthorpe Road’s official Christmas light’s switch on. Throughout the day shoppers will have the opportunity to join in the family fun including entertainment, a host of special offers and free gifts and the opportunity to win a giant bear.
