New store flying into Fulwood

We’ll be opening a brand new store on Watling Street Road in Fulwood, Preston at 9am on Thursday, 27th June 2019.

Fulwood will be the company’s second store in the Preston area and ninth in Lancashire. The new store will be a boost to the local community with more than 17 jobs created in both full- and part-time roles. The new store will replace the former Gas Appliance Spares shop.

Heron Foods will be giving away over 100 goodie bags worth over £5 to the first customers that spend £5 in store, alongside money-off coupons that will be featured in leaflets available in the first few days of opening, which can be redeemed in the first three weeks.

Recently promoted store manager, Asif Malik, who has been with the company for four years at our Shadsworth Hub store in Blackburn, said:

I’d personally like to thank colleagues for their preparation work and the residents who have already shown support. I think the store will give the area a huge boost.

As well as the ‘Top Quality, Low Prices’ food and drinks range, the store will also stock a health and beauty collection and pet products. Heron Foods – Fulwood will be open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 8pm, and Sunday, 9am to 5pm.

As part of the opening day celebrations, St Catherine’s Hospice, a local charity that helps people affected by serious illness enjoy quality of life and have dignity in death. St Catherine’s will be given £250 as a thank you from Heron Foods for welcoming us to the community.

Recruitment for the new store is taking place now with ten vacancies for part-time sales assistant roles available. The roles are advertised on the Heron Foods careers website at
