Cranstons Brampton Food Hall marked one year since it opened on 15th February with an instore celebration. Staff and customers shared a giant first birthday cake and a glass of bubbles to celebrate. For the food hall’s manager, Mark Mallinson, it was a day of double celebrations as his youngest son Isaac, born on opening day last year, also turned one.
Cranstons Brampton Food Hall has had a successful first year trading, proving a real hit with customers who have really embraced the local produce ranges on offer. Cranstons traditional shop, which closed when the food hall opened was a much smaller unit so the new larger premises allowed Cranstons to offer Brampton people a much greater choice. The 2,000 square foot Food Hall showcases local produce at its best, offering quality beef, pork and lamb from trusted local farms along with food and drink from over twenty Cumbrian producers as well as a well-stocked delicatessen, hot breakfast and lunch counter and a self-serve salad bar.
Mark Mallinson, Brampton Food Hall manager said: “I’d like to thank our customers for the continued support they’ve shown us since we opened the new Food hall last February. They came in large numbers on opening day and have continued to shop with us since, enjoying the extra produce we now offer. I’d also like to express my gratitude towards our staff; they’ve been wonderful to work with since day one and their hard work has helped grow the food hall over the past 12 months.”
Philip Cranston, Managing Director said: “Our move across the street into larger premises has been a real success. The Food Hall shopping concept, pairing quality butchery and delicatessen with a wide range of locally produced food and drink has worked well for Cranstons in Penrith and at Orton Grange so we decided to take the plunge in Brampton and replace our small traditional butchery shop with a bigger Food Hall. Thankfully the move has been well received. Food retailing is a very competitive market with so many different retailers chasing sales but the appetite for great quality locally produced food and drink remains strong’’
