Just weeks after establishing the Watermark Books store at King’s Cross Station, London and La Maison du Chocolat at London Heathrow T5, LS travel retail UK & Ireland is delighted to announce the opening of a RELAY store at Cannon Street Station in the English capital on 27 April 2012.

RELAY, Cannon Street Station – On track for footfall and sales

The newly opened 70 sqm news and convenience store is located in a prime location in central London. RELAY provides the station’s users, tourists and surrounding office workers with a wide range of magazines, newspapers, books, stationery, snacking, souvenirs, health and beauty. To meet customer demands, the RELAY staff have been trained to operate in a fast but also customer-focused environment.

Originally inspired by the RELAY Asia-Pacific store format, this store has been specifically adapted to address the UK market. The key focus of the store design is on driving sales performance whilst capitalising on the area’s high footfall.

Fin Casey, Managing Director of LS travel retail UK & Ireland, welcomes the new store: “Opening RELAY in London represents a key milestone in the evolution of LS travel retail UK business. This opening supports our strategy to expand our presence in the UK. I am delighted to further strengthen the partnership with Network Rail. The UK team and I continue to share their commitment to both raising the station experience and driving commercial performance’.

David Biggs, Head of Property Network Rail, commented: “We are thrilled to be working in partnership with RELAY to offer a new brand to our Cannon Street passengers. LS travel retail UK offers a range of retail concepts, and Fin and his team share our ambition to improve the overall experience for passengers with a greater level of choice and convenience at their station.”
