Work commenced at the beginning of January of this year, following months of planning and strategy. The project’s completion and public unveiling has been earmarked for 15th March, where visitors will discover a host of additions, including a new bakery and patisserie.
The Food Hall will incorporate a redesign throughout, with new ceiling, floor, lighting and shelf fixtures installed, as well as an upgraded air conditioning system.
The Food Hall’s fine wine department, which is home to over 1,100 wine varieties, will be completely redesigned and will host one of Norfolk’s first Enomatic wine tasting machines. The automated system offers a selection of the retailer’s finest vintages that are stored at the optimum temperature for the ideal tasting experience.
Michael Baker, managing director of Bakers & Larners of Holt said, “From the time we acquired the store in 1977, the Food and Wine Hall has always been a favourite department of mine. I am pleased to see it upgraded so that its environment matches its status as a leading food hall.”
