Convenience shopping in the UK is always on the hunt for a bigger share of sales.
The pressure of convenience shopping on traditional retail and on internet services is on the rise. The Co-op, which has over 4,000 stores in Great Britain, is a trend-setter for convenience shopping. The retailer chose Wanzl as a partner to optimise the performance of its traditional retail business in wines and spirits.
The Co-op relies on a supply system to constantly supply and fill the shelves with goods during store opening times. The equipment requirements on the retail space are stringent: flexible and practical to use, without holding up customers when they are shopping. A new solution for wines and spirits was particularly important, because demand was growing strongly. There was a pressing need for a supply system, especially during promotional campaigns and at peak times such as Christmas.
"The Co-op was convinced by our high-tempo business and the quality of our bottle trolley. We delivered 3,500 trolleys to 2,800 Co-op stores within 3 weeks, just in time for Christmas 2015. Another service_MADE BY WANZL."
