One Stop has experienced yet another year of growth with 27 brand-new company stores across the country opening their doors between March 2023 and March 2024. This is the most stores the convenience retailer has opened in a single year for the past five years! This milestone showcases One Stop’s unwavering commitment to providing convenient and affordable shopping experiences for their customers, whilst creating over 300 new jobs in local communities.  
Over the past year, One Stop has embarked on an ambitious expansion journey. From bustling communities to busy roadside locations, each new store has been carefully chosen to meet the needs of customers in each area.  

Nick Riches, Store Acquisitions Lead at One Stop said: “Our success is not only built on strong partnerships and collaboration, but also securing spaces in the right place at the right time. We remain committed to delivering exceptional service and value to customers in every community we serve.” 

With the new stores located in towns, cities and villages across the country, One Stop are keen to continue their expansion plans nationwide, from Cornwall to Northumberland, over the forthcoming years. 

Nick continued: “We focus on occupying leasehold retail spaces ranging from 2,500 to 3,000 square feet in size, which can be greenfield or brownfield developments, public houses/ building conversions or existing retail units. However, we always encourage landlords, commercial agents to get in touch if they’re interested in working with us, regardless of our suggested requirements. 

We’re looking forward to another year of growth at One Stop, with particularly focus on existing businesses and vacant units in the first six months of the year.” 

One Stop stores have been serving local communities throughout the UK for almost 50 years. During that time, they’ve built a reputation for operating quality convenience stores that add real value to their communities. 
With a portfolio of over 1,000 company owned and franchise stores located all across the UK, One Stop continues to be a trusted destination for customers seeking convenience, quality, and value.
