Project overview

The East of England Co-op purchased the former Budgens store in Hamlin Walk Woodbridge in September 2016. The 7,000sqft store will be one of the East of England Co-op’s new generation supermarkets stocking a wide range of its multi-award winning sourced locally produce, Deli-to-Go range, beers, wines and spirits and in-store bakery. Other services include an ATM, Subway, Collect + and home delivery. Customers also have access to free customer parking. The current Post Office will continue to provide a service to the local community from the store. Given its long history of partnering with the Co-op, we were delighted to be awarded the contract to refit the refrigeration, especially since we had prior experience of fitting out the store when it was first built by Budgens and also all subsequent refits. There was a lot of pressure on this project to ensure that we provided refrigeration that hit the high end design brief required for this flagship store so a lot of attention was given to cabinet profiles, colours and merchandising points of sale. We also worked closely with Hartes, the provider of some of the special finishes for the kiosk area, to clad some dual temperature integral impulse cabinets at the front of the store.

What did Pastorfrigor install?

Pastorfrigor provided the Venezia P87 range of multidecks, some open with glass front risers and also with Cisaplast sliding doors, all featuring Philips LED lighting, EC fans and stainless steel bumpers. The frozen food cabinets were Pastorfrigor Torino and the spot merchandisers Pastorkalt Felix BT/TN cabinets with cladding from Hartes.

What were the results?

It was a hugely exciting and enterprising project to work on and we were thrilled we the end result, helping the store become a new generation supermarket. Michael Scarlett, Project Manager for the East of England Co-op, told us “Pastorfrigor were very thorough. Like with all new projects, there can be teething problems but what’s important is how you deal with them. Pastorfrigor installed all the fridges and cabinets to programme and there has been great feedback on the fridge aisles where customers are liking the LED lights for example. The after-sales support has been excellent. We’ve found the whole team very helpful and looking forward to working with them again on more projects.”
