Local independent retailer Sewell on the go has re-opened its fuel and convenience store located on Maybury Road, East Hull, following a significant renovation.
The shop space has almost tripled in size and now features a COSTA coffee and hot food area, a large selection of wines and spirits, and a wider variety of every day essentials and fresh produce.
The improvement works have been carried out as part of a multi-million pound investment into the retailer’s estate, to improve its offer for customers. Works have also recently begun at the company’s South Cave service station along the A63 Westbound.
Patrick Sewell, Managing Director of Sewell on the go, said:
“Buying habits continue to evolve. Customers have moved away from the monthly ‘big shop’ concept and are keen to convenience shop, grabbing lunch as they fill up their car and picking up dinner as they pass on the way home from work.
“To remain relevant we have to continually evolve and make sure that our offer meets our customers’ needs and current buying habits. The Maybury store was designed 20 years ago and this renovation has transformed the retail space, we now have three times the space and three times the product lines.
“It’s a big investment from the business, both in the renovation and with the 25% increase in staff levels; we hope the revamped store will be well received by the local community.”
Work on site was carried out by Sewell on the go’s sister company, Sewell Construction.
Sewell on the go Maybury is one of twelve fuel and convenience stores operated by the retailer in Hull and East Yorkshire. All stores provide free ATMs, COSTA coffee, local produce and free WIFI.
