In mid-November, Waitrose partners cut the ribbon and officially opened what is now the biggest Waitrose branch in South West England.
A team from R G Carter followed a tight 32-week programme of works, which saw the branch’s available sales space almost triple in size.
Works were phased to allow the branch to remain open throughout, only closing for five days for a final fit out. The team overlaid the entire ground floor with tiles, the first time that such work has ever been carried out in a live Waitrose branch.
Waitrose Bath now has a new home department that stocks John Lewis lines; a ‘Food to Go’ section and a brand new customer café.
To celebrate the project’s successful completion, a cake version of the newly extended store was presented at the opening event.
