About the client

The Craven Arms Supermarket was the 3rd Supermarket opened by Harry Tuffins in 1985. The site was on former farm land and is located just off the A49 in the centre of Craven Arms. Delves & Co Ltd purchased the store in 2013 from the Midcounties Co-Operative and the store is proud to be an independent supermarket.

The store is 28,000 sqft and is a major employer in the area. The Supermarket is situated within the Craven Centre Complex which also includes a Beauty Salon, a Cafe and a Launderette. Delves & Co also operate a petrol station which has a convenient range of groceries if you are in a hurry. In 2015 a Subway sandwich franchise was added to the Craven Centre which is also run by the Delves family, and a Greggs was opened on the site independently in 2018.
