Rhythm & Booze’s ex-First Quench stores performing well

17 September, 2010

Rhythm & Booze managing director Martin Swaine has said the 34 shops he bought from First Quench are “performing exceptionally well”.

The 12 Wine Racks, 12 Threshers and 10 The Locals have all been rebranded under the Rhythm & Booze fascia and given new till systems, but only about a third have been fully refurbished so far, with extra refrigeration and more shelving.

He told OLN: “They have still got a long way to go – they really did come from a very low ebb. Nothing has happened that is dramatic, it is just a steady increase week-on-week. They are about 50% or 60% up on where they were last year.”?There are now 76 shops in the Rhythm & Booze estate, which has expanded from its South Yorkshire and Humberside base into Lincolnshire, North and West Yorkshire.
