News: Heron Foods gets stamp of approval


Yorkshire retailer Heron Foods has unwrapped the latest site in its partnership with the Post Office which ensures that a branch remains in Dinnington, Rotherham.

Having opened a new store in the former Eastwood Hotel pub earlier this year, the provider of top quality food products at the lowest possible prices, has officially opened its Dinnington store which also includes a co-located Post Office.

The opening of the Post Office has secured three part-time positions, with staff transferring from the former branch that closed down. The new branch is part of a programme of modernisation and investment across the Post Office network.

Mike Igoe, commercial director at Heron Foods, said: "We understand how important having a Post Office is to the residents of Dinnington. We're pleased that it's Heron Foods who is bringing back all of the benefits of Post Office counter services to the local community. The addition of a Post Office inside our Dinnington store, will make it easier for working people to access services, and they will be able to pick up plenty of Heron deals at the same time."


Kenny Lamont, Network Operations Area Manager at the Post Office, added: "This is the fourth Post Office that has opened within Heron Foods. Our new partnership with this leading discount food retailer works really well. This conveniently located new branch, which is open seven days a week and with long opening hours, makes it easy for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents. We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs and safeguard Post Office services in Dinnington for the future."

The rapidly growing East Yorkshire-based business was established in 1979 and now operates 240 stores. With increasing competition in the discount food market, Heron Foods Ltd posted turnover of £253m for the year up to December 25 2015, compared with £255m in the previous year.

With a strong presence in High Street locations, district centres and busy secondary locations in all towns in the North of England and the Midlands, the company said it has a strong pipeline for new store openings and expects to open in excess of 20 new and relocated stores in 2016.
