One Stop Franchise creates a buzz in Bridlington

3 December 2016

The ‘Bee Lady of Hull’ was the special guest as One Stop Marton Road Post Office officially opened its doors to the Bridlington community, on Saturday 26th November. Fundraiser Jean Bishop, who at 93 still attends events dressed in her distinctive stripey outfit, helped to cut the ribbon along with Deputy Mayor Malcolm Milns. The grand opening featured magicians, balloon artists and face-painters, with Jean raising more than £200 for Age UK on the day.

As the only Post Office on the north side of town, the 200 sq. ft. store needed to expand to better serve the ever-changing needs of the local community. Business owner and experienced retailer Nathan Selvachadran identified the need for a larger store, and for one that could accommodate a strong convenience offer.

“We are thrilled with the transformation into a One Stop, the store has been completely refurbished to a high standard and customers can now fulfil their entire shopping mission, without having to go somewhere else. We have been upgraded to a main post office, so we will be able to offer more for people coming in, which is great because we are the only post office open on this side of Bridlington. There’s quite an elderly population in the area, so for them we can be a bit of a lifeline. The site has increased a great deal and we are pleased we were able to take on six extra members of staff.”

Now boasting nearly 1,600 sq. ft of sales floor, customers have access to a fantastic range of fresh and chilled produce, a fully stocked off-licence and a host of competitive lunchtime and evening meal deals. Regular customers will also welcome the news that discussions have started about increasing the parking area outside the post office.
