McColls top 'new' store

Newsagent and gift store opens more shops than anyone else.

McColl’s tops the table of net openings for the 12 months to the end of July, according to research from the Local Data Company.

The symbols groups are being largely driven by signing up independents to their umbrella group, rather than organic store openings.

Excluding symbol groups, Sainsbury’s and Screwfix are the retailers recording the most aggressive store openings.
