A new convenience store is opening at Beverley’s Flemingate centre. It will provide a valuable service to people in the town during the lockdown and beyond.
The One Stop store, next to the Premier Inn hotel and close to the entrance to Flemingate’s multi-storey car park. When open, it will sell groceries, toiletries and other daily essentials.
Also, the shop will sell newspapers and magazines. It will be open seven days a week, from 7am each day.
Fitting out of the 1,980 sq ft unit will start next week, with the store due to open in early February.
The opening of One Stop will mean residents will have a convenience store providing food and household essentials on their doorstep. It will also be a boost for the local community following an announcement that the Co-op is to close in April.
The One Stop opening will also create a minimum of 10 much-needed local jobs.
One Stop Stores Limited, a subsidiary of Tesco, is a retail convenience business with over 900 company and franchise neighbourhood stores across Great Britain. Employing more than 10,500 staff, One Stop stores offer local communities a range of convenience food and household goods at affordable prices.
The new store will also sell sandwiches and snacks and offer meal deals for people living and working in the area.
One Stop Will Compliment Current Offerings At Retail Park

“It is also creating new jobs and bringing further investment into Beverley, building on the positive impact Flemingate has had on the local economy.”
