Jeroboams is delighted to announce the expansion of its neighbourhood shop portfolio to include Wimbledon Village in London. This will be the ninth retail shop within the Jeroboams Group.
Jeroboams, who recently won the Decanter Retail Award for Outstanding Wine Retailer of the Year, has seen continued growth on the high street, despite the challenges faced over recent years. CEO of Jeroboams, Matt Tipping, confirmed, “we have made no secret of the fact that we have wanted to grow our portfolio of shops, and take Jeroboams to areas where we would like to have a physical presence. With the continuation of trends including flexible and home-based working, we hope that many of our regular online and private customers in Wimbledon will welcome the arrival of a local Jeroboams shop. We are very excited to be moving into ‘the village’ at a time when our business continues to go from strength to strength.”
“We feel we can bring something unique to the people of Wimbledon, adding to the exciting dynamic the village has to offer”, Tipping adds. “As with each of our ventures, we are committed to maintaining the values of the individual shops and their localities. We are fiercely independent and the producers we work with throughout the business, many of whom are family-owned, like-minded, with a long-term, quality–focused philosophy with sustainability in mind. We have a fantastic retail estate of shops to showcase our extensive range, and pride ourselves on providing customers with the highest level of service.”
Alongside Jeroboams’ award-winning portfolio of quality wines, beers and spirits, the Wimbledon Village shop will have a strong local presence, with numerous new independent producers confirmed thus far including Wimbledon Brewery and Yotes Court wines. Inspired by Jeroboams Holland Park’s award-winning food and wine emporium, this new site will also feature a premium food offering and include luxury brands such as Charbonnel et Walker, Prestat, Sally Clarke, Ballancourt and more, as well as Jeroboams’ signature regular (free) weekly in-store tastings and a monthly wine club. Tipping adds “we will bring our expertise and learning from our other sites, and add many services such as fine wine services, local delivery, events, wine storage, valuation facilities and trade sales.”
“We have been searching for the right location for some time and would only consider the investment if we felt that all the factors were right. Our passionate and knowledgeable team look forward to being welcomed into the Wimbledon Village community.”
The Wimbledon Village shop will be at opening on the 9th of December 2022 and our celebratory opening party will be held on the 14th December 5 - 7pm. All are welcome, pop by and meet the team!
