Entrepreneur Jack Knight has added the Cotswold Grocer to his portfolio.
Jack has also opted to rebrand Waghornes Butchers unit. Both shops can be found within the Five Valley shopping centre, with Knight taking over the lease on the current Waghornes Butchers unit, which will be known as Knights Artisan Butchers.
He said: “After managing Waghornes for the past two years I’m hugely excited to be rebranding and continuing to serve our loyal customer base.
“I saw a great opportunity to also offer shoppers a good quality fruit and veg range. With all the centre developments afoot we see the huge potential in this already thriving market and have found that Stroud is an excellent place to provide people with locally sourced, good quality produce.”
Following the exact same values held at Waghornes, The Cotswold Grocer will be sourcing as much British produce as possible and promises to continue providing their customers with the highest quality, fresh selection.
As well as this, Jack will continue to ensure minimal waste is produced with all excess meat made into natural dog food. Jack’s plan is to also reduce any product waste at the greengrocer, adding: “We will be juicing our fruit and veg too, creating the freshest juices for our customers to enjoy!”
Centre Manager of Five Valleys Shopping Centre, Jessica Derham, said: “The Cotswold Grocer completes the line-up at our Indoor Market and we’re extremely excited to work alongside Jack and his team to offer a great food shopping offer to our visitors”.
The Cotswold Grocer will be open Monday – Saturday and can be found in the unit which was formally The Vine Shop.
