Mike Rutter, SandpiperCI’s Retail Director said “ We are excited to expand our retail estate in Alderney. In September 2020 we re-established our presence back into the island when we purchased Le Cocq’s Stores. We said at the time we would be looking for other opportunities for further investment in Alderney and Richards Newsagents is the perfect fit alongside Le Cocq’s.”

Initially, the store will be running along the same lines, with the same opening hours, product offering and the same staff; no redundancies are occurring with the acquisition. Once things have settled with COVID, the plan is to then look at enhancing the store and its product offering to provide an even better range and customer service experience to Alderney’s community.
