Minale Tattersfield & Partners has been appointed to develop a new retail concept for Northern Ireland client Winemark, based on a selection of retailers centred around a petrol station. If successful, the 2m per site concept may move to mainland Britain.
Winemark is a 140-strong off-licence chain. Its plans involve locating services such as a post office, pharmacy, florist and fast food outlets around a central petrol station. The proposed niche retailers may remain open 24 hours a day.
Agreements have been reached with the Post Office, and sub-contractors to run the petrol retailing side are now being sought. Minale Tattersfield will develop corporate identity, branding, architecture and retail design for the project.
The consultancy has opened new offices in Singapore, superseding the previous and now defunct Minale Tattersfield & Acton office there.
