Majestic continues store expansion programme with Newark opening
Specialist wine retailer Majestic has opened its latest store in Newark-on-Trent as it accelerates the expansion of its store portfolio.
Situated on the Maltings Retail Park, alongside M&S and B&Q, the 2,900 square foot shop stocks the full Majestic range of wines, beers and spirits, as well as low and no-alcohol alternatives, soft drinks and snacks.
The store will host free wine tastings seven days a week from its in-store Tasting Counter to offer customers the opportunity to try a selection of wines before they buy. Shoppers will also benefit from services such as free glass hire for occasions such as weddings and birthday parties, free click-and-collect within as little as four hours, and next-day delivery.
The Newark shop marks the second new store opening of Majestic’s 2023/24 financial year and its 205th store in the UK. The retailer is looking to expand its physical store presence at a rate of one new shop per month, with new sites in Crouch End, Monmouth and Chippenham all due to open before Christmas.
Majestic has renewed its focus on bricks-and-mortar retail following its split from Naked Wines in 2019. Since then, the retailer has opened 12 new stores and celebrated its second-best Christmas trading period ever in 2022.
Majestic chief executive John Colley said: “We have had our eyes on Newark for some time as part of our expansion plans and are delighted to finally be opening a store in the town. Everyone at Majestic is looking forward to serving the local community and bringing our award-winning wines and expert knowledge to the area.
“We continue to be champions of experiential retail and are proud to be accelerating our pipeline of new store openings ahead of Christmas. We are hugely excited about becoming a part of even more communities across the UK in the coming months.”
