After 15 years at Staplegrove Road, John Packer Ltd. is expanding to pastures new!
The company has changed enormously during this time and now out-grown the shop on Staplegrove Road in Taunton. Those local to, or who have travelled to our shop in Taunton will have a lot of affection for our higgledy-piggledy shop, but with the massive growth of our international and mailorder business – for which we won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category this year – it has become necessary to look for somewhere larger.
For some years the company has been running on multiple sites so making a move up the road to Chelston Business Park between Taunton and Wellington to a new 10,000 sq ft facility will incorporate the shop, offices and warehousing. The staff really can’t wait to all work under the same roof!
Presently we’re still putting the finishing touches to our Retail space, so the exact opening date isn’t known. However, we’re hoping it could be late October/early November, with no closure to customers while we make the move.
While the address will be different we’ll still be providing the same level of specialist service, with a designated shop space and practice rooms for customers. Parking will be free and ample right on-site and the shop will have full disabled access. For our customers who come from far and wide the easy access to Junction 26 of the M5 motorway means no more traffic to contend with.
