To open a new Grocery Store in Altrincham - after an amazing 8 months trading in Heaton Moor we are aiming to open a new site.

by William Marc France in Bowdon, England, United Kingdom

In April 2020 when Covid was just starting to close the country down, Will co-owner, lost his job - 12 weeks later after taking out a small business loan we opened after finding an amazing site in Heaton Moor & pulling together a business around our love of food. 

Since July Bernie's has become busier & busier - seeing 300% growth over such a short period. It turns out the demand for independent, well sourced food, through a retail environment that is friendly & fun is completely insatiable. Throughout this time frame the idea has continued to evolve & the belief has come that every neighbourhood needs an amazing "corner shop" again, because that's in essence what Bernie's is. 

In its short time trading the store has paid more than 100k into other independent companies - families, couples, sole traders, farms, bakeries etc etc - It helps support a network that exists outside most major chains & routes to market that we want to champion.

We want to grow this, we want to help make change & give better options for people purchasing & producing food. We want direct relationships with all these amazing people & we want to tell their stories to you.

The Altrincham site will essentially be a bigger version of the Heaton Moor site with the addition of a small bakery that Beth will be in charge of.
