HBL News: The People's Supermarket to open second store

Monday, 22 August 2011

Community retailers The People's Supermarket, pioneers of an alternative food buying system that allows customers to exchange labour for supplies, are set to open their second store. The Grocer reports that, following the success of the first store in Bloomsbury, the London-based organisation will open their second branch in Hackney - with three sites currently being reviewed for the purpose.

Kate Bull, Chief Executive of the company, said: “Social enterprises have been mistaken for operating only in the voluntary sector, but it is a way of doing business that goes much wider, across all industries and sectors."
