Chatting to the new manager of Lightwater’s Coop store

I met Peter Davey, the new manager – since January 2017 – of Lightwater’s Coop store, at the Lightwater Business Association’s networking evening on Tuesday evening.

In conversation with Peter, I asked what was the most popular item sold in the store. ‘Easy’, he said, ‘It’s bananas’. This confirms Lightwater shoppers are the same as those nationally, where bananas are also top of the list. Asked by me what was the second most purchased item, Peter said milk. Again the same nationally.

I didn’t have long to talk with Peter, though I did get to ask him of his plans for the store? Improving the look of the Square with plants, and engaging with local customers with a local Twitter account and Facebook page.

Lets wish Peter good luck, and hope he keeps improving the store and it’s lines. In the photo below, Peter is on the right looking straight into my camera.

  1. Looking at the age range of the shoppers (when I went in for milk only) I wonder how many will have twitter & facebook accounts, or even smart phones ??
