BOOTHS in Clitheroe is inviting its customers to an in-store tasting event on Saturday to celebrate the supermarket’s 30th year serving the town.

Farmers and producers will be offering tastings of their produce including Fiddler’s Lancashire Crisps, grown on the family farm near Ormskirk, Waterfields, which began as a small delicatessen in Clitheroe and has grown to supply quality, homemade ready meals for the majority of Booths stores, and puddings from Farmhouse Fayre in Clitheroe. There’ll also be Wallings Real Dairy Ice Cream, The Collective Dairy luxury yogurts and Stockley’s Quality Sweets, accompanied by a range of Booths wines.

David Ramm, store manager, said; “We are extremely proud of the progress we’ve made in developing the store over the last 30 years to become an integral part of the community in Clitheroe and look forward to many more decades to come. We place the utmost importance in quality and have worked hard to engage with the local community and develop trusting and sustainable partnerships with local suppliers and producers. We are very grateful to our loyal customers, many of whom have been shopping at the store since it opened in 1983, and hope to see a great turn out at our tasting event this weekend.”

There will be free prize draws taking place with prizes provided by Booths and their suppliers.

The tasting event will be running from 10-30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Since June 1847, six generations of the Booths family have led E.H. Booth & Co. Ltd from modest beginnings, with just one small shop in Blackpool, to the present day where the company trades 29 food, wine and grocery stores across Lancashire, Cumbria, Yorkshire and Cheshire.
