Rob & Meenu Bains open second One Stop Franchise
Following the success of Rob and Meenu Bains’ first store, which has seen sales rise by 25% since joining One Stop in 2014 and remains the closest franchise to One Stop’s hub of operations in Brownhills, they have opened their second store in Parkhill Road, Burntwood.
Their second store ‘One Stop Parkhill Local’ is located at Ryecroft Shopping Centre in Chase Terrace and officially opened its doors on the 6th April. Since taking over they have extended the opening hours and are now open seven days a week, from 6:30 am until 9:30 pm every day, to better serve the needs of the local community. In addition, the store has created 4 new jobs in the local area.
Although it has changed hands several times over the years the convenience store has been serving local customers for over 20 years, so it was important for it to not only remain trading, but to improve the range of products and services explains franchisee Meenu, “We have been overwhelmed with the positive feedback and just how welcoming the local residents have been, we were aware that the store had been trading for over 20 years but didn’t appreciate the extent of its role as the hub of the local community. Many rely on the store for daily goods as there is no other shop within walking distance, especially for a lot of the elderly customers. We are delighted to have been able to breathe new life into the store and look forward to fulfilling the needs of the local community.”
The store boasted a grand opening weekend to celebrate, with local residents Mr Peter Tams (85 years old) and his wife cutting the ribbon. A launch featured a range of activities which included, face painting, complimentary snacks and drinks, Easter raffle, Easter egg treats, colouring competitions, and much more with all the money raised on the day going to the Stephen Sutton Trust in aid of Teenage Cancer.
