Innovative convenience retailer Eat 17, has opened a fourth store – its largest to date – in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire.

The 9,500 sq ft unit, which is part of the Spar symbol group, has 3,000 sq ft of concessions that include three street-food stalls – Col’s Kitchen, Chihuahua’s and Katsu – a fishmonger and a florist. Eat 17 also runs its own bar and café on the site.

The shop, managed by Ben Caulfield, sells local beers and Spar groceries as well as speciality products and Eat 17 own-label goods, including its own blend of coffee served in the café and packaged in the shop.

It features a large vegan and vegetarian chilled section and an in-store bakery bakes fresh organic loaves every day.

The next store in the pipeline is Hammersmith, west London, followed by Leytonstone in the east of the Capital.

Co-owner James Brundle said: “There’s a big street-food mo in some parts of London, but in Bishop’s Stortford, in Essex and Hertfordshire, it’s not really done. It’s a bit of an experiment.”
