In addition, the introduction of an alcohol licence will offer a wide range of fantastic wines, spirits and beers from local breweries.

Tom Brooke, Managing Director of Brooke’s, was quoted as saying that he was “delighted to be opening a second location in Richmond. We work closely with the local community and suppliers to ensure that we offer the best products and service we can. We have wider expansion plans, but are currently focusing on North Yorkshire as we feel it is important to stay close to our roots.”

The petrol forecourt will remain open, giving customers one convenient location to fill up both their cars and their shopping baskets. Brooke’s will offer a competitive fuel price to accompany their extensive food range.
