Hancocks celebrates 60th anniversary with in-store event

Hancocks Cardiff is marking its 60th anniversary with an in-store event for customers and suppliers on 10 March.

The Cardiff store first opened in 2002 and was relocated to its current site on Penarth Road in 2014 when bigger premises were needed.

The in-store event, sponsored by Haribo, Nestle, Mondelez and Frisia, will include over 160 offers for retailers, as well as prize draws and giveaways featuring Apple Airpods, an electric scooter, a golf & spa break for two, free stock and more.

Jo Rowlands, manager of the Cardiff store, has worked for Hancocks for 20 years. She said: “We’re delighted to be opening our doors to customers and suppliers in Cardiff to celebrate Hancocks’ 60th anniversary and to thank them for being an integral part of the Hancocks journey.

“This celebration is a chance for us to talk to retailers to show them what we have planned for the coming year, the offers available to them and the new confectionery lines we’ll be introducing.”

Hancocks chief operating officer Jonathan Summerley added: “Reaching such a milestone anniversary is a testament to how our teams across the business work together, the service and products we’re able to supply to retailers, however large or small, and the suppliers we work with on a daily basis.

“Our selection of confectionery is unrivalled and it’s this which keeps us relevant and ahead of the competition.

“The last couple of years have been difficult for most businesses. We’ve invested heavily in our online offering, and this combined with the 14 depots across the UK, means we offer flexibility and allow retailers to shop in the way they prefer.”
