TANKERSLEY-based Company Shop is set to create another 180 jobs, boosting its local workforce of 360 by 50 per cent.

The fast-growing business is the UK's largest redistributor of surplus food and sells it at knockdown prices through a string of stores on company premises throughout the country.

It handles more than 30,000 tonnes of surplus stock a year and employs about 500 staff around the country, including at Tankersley and depots in Grimsby and Corby.


Chairman John Marren said the company's aim was to double turnover in the next five years.
