Corp and his wife Amy from Londis Hall Green are finding.
Jon had originally traded from the unit for many years but, after he sold
the business, he saw that the new owners were not able to make the
site a success and invested heavily in a refit and new stock in 2018, and
retained the Post Office.
He also invested in safety screens, a hand sanitiser station and created
a queuing system during the lockdown, and found customers flooding
back as they felt more safe and secure in his store, and complimented
him on a well-stocked store. Basket spend went up from £6 to £14
during the first lockdown, and Jon contains to retain a large chunk of
that even now.
“We aren’t on a main road, we are tucked away in amongst all the
chimney pots, so you have to work hard to get customers by word of
mouth,” Jon says. “We always have a good atmosphere in store and
provide good service. Social media is really important too: whenever we
get a new product in we stick it on Facebook. I find that word of mouth
works, but Facebook works all the time!”

Londis Cradley Heath
In common with many local shops, Londis Cradley Heath experienced
a huge surge in business during the initial lockdown period.
As a family business, Rab Sangha and brother Manni made all the
necessary adjustments such as screens, signage and customer flow
systems, but their commitment to keeping their customers safe
means they have retained most of that gain even during the quieter
months of January and February.
“We implemented a new cleaning programme in-store and put in a
hand sanitiser station,” Rab told Londis News. “Once the customers
got used to all the changes they were great and I think we have kept
60-70% of the initial sales surge. We are looking forward to another
big upturn once the warmer weather comes along.”
