Wellparks Celebration
Wellparks Celebration

This week we unveiled a new site in Crediton where our new multi-million pound Mole Avon Town and Country Store will be built.

Wendy Stevens (Store Manager of the Crediton Store) and some of her team were there to celebrate along with our chairman, managing director, some of the board of directors and staff from the support centre and Town & Countrywear in Crediton.

The land at Wellparks on Exeter Road is where we will relocate from the current smaller site on Mill Street in the near future. We have been on the Mill Street site in Crediton since 1973 and have been keen to move to a suitable local site for many years.

This will be our biggest investment in the business to-date and we are pleased to be making major investment in the Town. "We have invested in our Okehampton and Axminster sites over the past three decades and it is great that we have secured the site at Wellparks which will provide a solid platform for future growth” says Mike Haines, Managing Director of Mole Avon, “This development will safeguard existing jobs and create a number of new employment opportunities for the people of Crediton and the surrounding rural area.

“We will finally be able to increase the breadth and depth of our product offering as well as looking into adding additional services and support for our core customer categories” continues Mr Haines, “This will enable us to serve our traditional farmer base alongside the wider community making us the local rural retailer of choice.”

“I am delighted that Mole Avon has taken another significant step forward in the process of redeveloping our Crediton store by marking the start of earth works on the site we recently acquired at Wellparks” says John Lee, chairman of the board of directors for Mole Avon Trading Limited, “Our new Managing Director, Mike Haines and his management team have been charged with building and delivering a state of the art store which will improve the retail experience for all our customers while maintaining our range of goods for the agricultural and rural community. This development, which will be the largest investment in the company’s history, is a strong indication of our commitment to Crediton and the surrounding area”.

Work on the new access road and associated works are planned to be under way during the autumn.
