Forecourt and convenience supremo David Charman of Parkfoot Garage in Kent is proud to announce he has sold his first lobster!
He introduced a fresh fish counter at the Spar store at his multi-award-winning site on the A20 in West Malling a couple of weeks ago following demand by customers.
“It’s not something I ever thought I’d do, but it’s going really well and I sold my first lobster on Bank Holiday weekend,” he said. “Customers have been impressed by our butcher’s counter, and have been asking if we can supply fresh fish.
“We made enquiries via Country Choice, which is owned by Brake Bros. Brakes runs a great service and is set up to supply convenience stores with the best of the world’s catch on a daily basis. You can make an order today and it will arrive the next day. It’s fresher than the local Tesco’s and has gone down really well with customers.”
