MaxiSaver to open 20 more stores this year

MaxiSaver has announced plans to open another 20 stores this year, in a move that is set to create hundreds of jobs.

The retailer opened eight stores throughout the Midlands since August last year with its first store in Hinckley’s Britannia Centre, creating approximately 100 jobs so far.

The retailer is now actively searching for new premises that offer between 2,500 sq ft and 6,000 sq ft of sales space in towns and cities across a “vast geographical area”, and is also on the lookout for larger out-of-town units covering up to 15,000 sq ft.

Paul Mathers, managing director, MaxiSaver, said: “Each store will initially create 10 new jobs, so we will also be recruiting 200 people across our store network this year, as well as growing our head office team in line with our ongoing expansion strategy.

“Within two years our aim is to have most major towns in the country enjoying the benefits of MaxiSaver.”

He added: “Although the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in lots of people predicting the end for the British high street, there’s no doubt people are still keen to visit real shops.

“Consumers want convenience, vast product choice and value for money, which is what appeals about online shopping, and there’s no reason why we can’t offer these three fundamentals on the high street.”
