Costcutter Supermarkets Group has sealed a new long-term trading partnership with Store Retail Group (SRG), which currently operates six stores across the Manchester region.

The deal will see Costcutter providing central and direct to store supply for the group’s stores which include the General Store and Foodhall brands.

The SRG, led by retailer Mital Morar, will also get support from Costcutter to further develop its retail business.

“I’m very pleased to be aligning my business with CSG,” Morar commented. “I’ve been particularly impressed with their partnership approach to business development and the wealth of expertise they can bring to our group.

“My team and I are excited for the future of our partnership and to already be working collaboratively on a number of new opportunities.”

Costcutter said plans are already underway to expand the partnership with the potential for more sites to be brought onboard under the agreement before the end of 2020 and into 2021.

Jamie Davison, CSG business development director, added: “SRG is a progressive and well-respected group and we are delighted to announce this new partnership. Partnering with Mital and his team is testament to our leading offer and levels of support which will enable SRG to respond to and thrive in today’s challenging market. We are looking forward to supporting them as they further develop and expand their unique retail offering.”
