Grand new Guildford store opens for business

Posted on September 06, 2019

An impressive development project that has been two years in the planning, has finally come to fruition in Guildford with the launch of Guild Foods Market.

Independent retailer Mayank Shah, a Nisa partner, has created what he believes is a whole new take on the convenience retail sector bringing together a huge range of specialist and local foods to the store.

The shop, previously known as Falcon Garage, has almost tripled in size and now has a very different look and feel, moving away from the conventional convenience store layout by zoning categories in a way that is more inviting to customers and offers an enjoyable shopping experience.


The development of the store has seen investment in under shelf lighting and a shelf management system that always ensures highest instore presentation throughout the day.

A specialist standalone vaping shop, an independent florist concession and a health food section focusing on whole foods and proteins have been introduced and a kitchen installed where shoppers can purchase a huge range of freshly prepared foods and snacks including smoothies, hot sandwiches and more.

Business development manager at Guild Foods Market, Gary Kemp said: “We are giving customers a fantastic choice. Shoppers can buy their everyday brands here at their usual competitive prices or they can choose from a multitude of specialist brands which are typically hard to find in the market.
“This is a new take on convenience retailing – it’s about bringing together mainstream convenience and more specialist products to provide our shoppers with a very different experience.”
