Graham Stuart MP Visits High Street Convenience Store

Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart has visited a Heron Foods store on Toll Gavel in Beverley town centre to discuss issues for the convenience sector and wider high street businesses. Heron Foods was established in 1979, but now trades from 250 stores, employing over 3,000 people.

Speaking at the visit, Graham Stuart MP said: “It is great to be here today to see this thriving local shop in action. I have always been a huge supporter of local businesses like this one and I am delighted to see the retail industry in Beverley doing so well, providing the best for customers and boosting the economy of the East Riding of Yorkshire.”

Mally Thornhill, Heron Foods Area Manager, added: “It was a real pleasure meeting Graham Stuart MP yesterday at the Beverley branch, as we know he has a busy schedule; and he took his time to get to know myself and John Oliver the Store Manager. We welcomed him into the store and discussed what makes our customers come back week after week, and he was very impressed with our prices and quality of products. Graham had never been in a Heron Foods store before and could see the range we carry and that price was a great attraction to our customers. We discussed parking prices in Beverley, the new shopping precinct and hopefully how he can work with us to help businesses move forward with future developments in Beverley.”
