This week’s “Chill Challenge” was accepted by Ludlow’s SPAR Chalet Stores, Portadown.
Working with Paul Ludlow, store owner and the team Feargal, Sandra and Gary we
recently embarked on a store reFRESH. This busy store on the outskirts of Portadown has
been successfully serving the public for a number of years, providing daily essentials as
well as great range of fresh foods. With this essential review of chilled space this
presented the perfect opportunity to align the stores current commodity performance
with the existing stores chilled space and an opportunity to enhance the range and
introduce new lines that would be expected in a store of this type.
We used the Fresh Design Manager and built a bespoke chilled plan using the planograms
produced by our internal space planning teams and integrated this with the stores
thinking to come up with a suitable solution. This change has brought greater efficiency
to this category making it much easier to maintain range, complete ordering, change
promotional activity, introduce where possible the use of sales ready packaging (SRP)
and ultimately the daily management of this category.
We loved working with the great team at SPAR Chalet Stores and wish continued success
in the years to come.

Fresh Retail Price Realignment
We have carried out a detailed review of our fresh retail pricing on key lines and due to
this we have made necessary changes to some retail pricing with NO change to wholesale
price. The result of this will be margin enhancement on these lines.
Unfortunately, due to promotional cycles we had to issue the first set of price changes last
weekend. However, going forward we will ensure that any future price changes are not
issued on the same weekend as a promotional cycle change.
Apologies for any confusion this may have caused.

retailers. The best way to merchandise all or
some of the range is by displaying it all
together side by side to give that real “fresh
from the field” look. This range will require
more attention than pre-packed alternatives
to ensure its fresh and the shelf life is
maintained for as long as possible.
