Waitrose to open in Hawkhurst

Waitrose sign jul2013

Waitrose, the food shops of the John Lewis Partnership, has announced that it has reached an agreement with Booker Retail Partners GB to acquire its shop in Rye Road in Hawkhurst.

All Budgens staff employed at the branch will transfer to Waitrose and will become Partners in the John Lewis Partnership.

As part of the investment Waitrose is making in the store, the retailer also anticipates creating up to 40 jobs at the branch with recruitment expected to start in the summer via its website www.jlpjobs.com.

Budgens will continue to trade until summer at a date to be confirmed. It will then be handed over to Waitrose with the new shop expected to open in autumn 2016.

Waitrose has also announced it will be launching its Community Matters and Partner Volunteering schemes which will see £6,000 and 100 hours donated to local causes nominated by customers each year.

Nigel Keen, Director of Development at Waitrose, said:

“This is an exciting opportunity to bring the Waitrose brand to Hawkhurst and we cannot wait to welcome our new customers in the autumn.  We look forward to becoming part of the community and making a positive contribution to the area for many years to come.”
