F3GROUP acted as programme and project manager on the complete refurbishment of 111 Waitrose stores across the UK.
Waitrose, at the time of the project, had over 200 stores throughout the UK.
Key features across the UK including:
- Refrigeration re-branding
- New checkouts
- New decorations
- Hand-held bar-code devices
- Chip-and-pin technology
- Various other improvements to the interiors
Waitrose’s update of technology involved the roll-out of an RF system, and the installation of an IT infrastructure across 80 stores. This was installed to support hand-held bar-code devices and chip-and-pin technology, staying up to date with the latest trends at that time.
A benefit to Waitrose was our ability to adjust our resource in accordance with the peaks and troughs that are inevitable in a multi-site project.
