Summer opening for latest Planet Organic store

London-based health and wellbeing retailer Planet Organic is set to open a new store in the north-west of the city later this summer.

The development comes just months after specialist consumer brands investor Inverleith LLP announced that it taken a majority stake in the pioneer organic retail chain, signalling its intention to double the current store count of seven outlets around the capital.

The store will form part of the Queens Studios development, a renovated Victorian building on Salusbury Road at the top end of the Queens Park village, and next to the local primary school.

The shop will have 2,300sq ft of retail space with Planet Organic’s signature mix of food-to-go, groceries, healthcare and bodycare. It will be about the same size as the retailer’s successful Islington store.

With a strong family-orientated community, the retailer sees Queens Park as an ideal location for the next Planet Organic store.

Work on the site is reported to be progressing smoothly and the new store is expected to open mid-August.
