New Greggs store ‘pops up’ for Euro Garages


Euro Garages parent EG Group has taken delivery of a large new Greggs pop up shop at Kinmel Park West Services in North Wales, as it continues to meet growing demand for enhanced retail offerings on the forecourt.

EG Group has partnered with modular retail specialist Rapid Retail on the project, who designed, built and installed the bespoke shop unit in under eight weeks. It is the first time the two companies have worked together, with further installations now in the pipeline.

David Myers, UK development director, EG Group, commented: “We’re really pleased with the new retail unit. It looks fantastic and delivers on our commitment to providing premium retail convenience for our customers.

“Modular retail units are the perfect solution for us; they can be customised to our brand partners’ requirements allowing us to maximise the external space we have available on our sites. Fundamentally modular also enables us to minimise trading disruption. They are not only cost effective but look great and can be quickly deployed, which helps our pipeline planning across the EG Group portfolio.”

The pop up retail unit has been branded and fitted out in line with existing bricks and mortar Greggs stores. Measuring 12m x 7m, the unit is one of the largest pop up shops Rapid Retail has ever produced. It features wood-affect non-slip vinyl flooring, wall mounted displays and built-in refrigeration.

Nick Daffern, MD, Rapid Retail, said: “We’re delighted to have worked with EG Group on this project. The popularity of this type of modular retail unit continues to grow, not only on the forecourt but for use in shopping centre car parks, train station platforms, sports grounds and other high footfall locations. “

Euro Garages is one of the UK’s fastest growing and most recognisable forecourt retail operators. With a portfolio of more than 395 UK sites, the company’s retail offering includes 120 Starbucks drive-to and drive-thru restaurants, 165 Subway sub-stations and 185 Greggs bakeries.
