Booths makes move

Re:fresh award-winning retailer Booths has relocated its Lancashire-based headquarters to state-of-the-art offices tailor-made to help its staff achieve their business objectives.

With a desire to create offices to reflect the working culture at Booths, the supermarket last year called in workplace environment specialist the TSK Group and has moved to a new site in Preston.

Together with architects Farrell & Clark, the company designed and delivered the new HQ, which boasts space-planning techniques, fewer physical boundaries and ergonomically designed workstations and furniture solutions to boost colour and comfort.

“At Booths we are very proud of our team, our heritage and our business principles. With the new offices, we aimed to create an environment that would both reflect and support the way we do business,” said Booths director Graham Booth.

“If we ever needed confirmation of the impact the new workplace would have, the enthusiasm for the project from our staff proved how important the working environment is to them. In my opinion, the investment made in the new HQ is a direct investment in the Booths workforce.”

TSK’s Head of Design Martin Barber-Redmore said: “We were able to establish a design that actively supports the regular working practices of Booths staff, whilst also having a positive impact on productivity, morale and communication. It’s not all about simply looking nice; it is a space that has been coordinated to achieve the business objectives identified at the start.” He added.

Booths took last year's Re:fresh Food From Spain Independent Retailer of the Year award.
