Rye Supermarket to receive a major refurbishment

We are delighted to announce a multi-million pound refurbishment and extension of our Rye supermarket.

Remodelling works have begun, with a new temporary entrance, which will be followed by foundation works for the extension and new car park layout. Once completed the new look store will have 50% more retail space, housing lots of new products and offering an exceptional shopping experience.

Works are scheduled for completion before Christmas, and we intend to keep the store open throughout, with minimal amount of disruption to customers.

The project will see a complete remerchandising of the store, there will be brand new fridges, freezers, shelving and fixtures.

There will be an enhanced fresh fruit and vegetables ‘Market Hall’ featuring an array of local seasonal produce, an expansion of the bakery, further Food-to-Go choices, a complete change in the way the aisles are laid out, along with increased check-out facilities.

The town’s Post Office will also be incorporated within the store, its opening hours will be also extended from 6am to 10pm, Monday to Saturday.

Externally in addition to the car park layout, there will be new lighting and goods-in area.
