Parfetts expands Aintree depot to boost delivered and C&C business

Parfetts has completed an expansion of its Aintree depot.

A dedicated loading area has been created for delivered operations, which have grown by 40% in the last two years from the Aintree site.

The depot now serves customers across the North West from North Manchester into the Lake District and down to Stoke-on-Trent, and has hired 25 new employees to cope with demand.

The investment in the Aintree branch follows the company’s strategy of maintaining a market-leading cash & carry whilst continuing to grow the delivered arm of the business.

Anthony Fisher-Hibbs, general manager at Parfetts Aintree, commented: “The expansion of the depot will create the capacity we need to continue to grow our delivered business while providing a better experience for our visitors. We’ve experienced significant growth through the pandemic as new retailers tried us for the first time and stayed. We aim for turnover to hit £3 million a week over the coming months.”

The project also saw a dedicated picking area developed within the depot, which also creates more room for customers.
