George franchisee picks Import Services

Import Services has won the contract to provide logistics services for SandpiperCI which is opening George franchise stores in Jersey and Guernsey.

George currently accounts for half of Asda’s general merchandise sales and is already a growing global brand through Walmart stores.

Import Services is providing inbound customs clearance, storage, order processing, pick/pack and distribution to the stores, from bonded container port facilities in Southampton.

Nick Steel, business development director of SandpiperCI said: “George leads the way in value and quality and will fit perfectly into our current franchise estate. We are certain the new George stores will bring our customers a wide range of affordable and fashionable product offerings.

“We are also delighted to be working with Import Services, the specialist retail logistics company which will provide a key part of our supply chain operation to the stores.”
