Welcome to Costcutter Early Careers!

Shop Front

This is an exciting time to be in the world of grocery retail; an industry worth nearly £200billion a year with Convenience retail commanding a whopping £40billion of this.

So what is Convenience retail?

Historically large format Supermarkets were the only option for shoppers, but we have moved away from this way of shopping in favour of local, smaller, convenient and community based stores. Our network of over 1000 independent convenience retailers is continually striving to meet the needs of these shoppers.

As the face of grocery retail continues to change we are nimble and dynamic enough to change with it and with a predicted 17% growth by 2023 Convenience retailing is where it is at!

Which brings us to our Mission.....
