Captain Concord opened his 1st Concord Discounts Store back in 1980 - At that time a groundbreaking and innovative concept!
The retail business expanded rapidly and lead to the opening of Concord Cash and Carry Ltd in 1986 a logical progression in terms of supply for the growing retail concern and cost effective buying.
The monumental change in retail opening hours in the UK in 1994 created a shockwave for small retailers everywhere. They soon began to feel the pinch as the giant multiple retailers gobbled up what had been for generations the bread & butter business of the traditional local store “the Sunday and Late Night trade”.
The ripple effect of this was a downturn in Cash & Carry business all over the country.
For Captain Concord this was a new challenge and it was decided to expand into new markets. A vigorous program of advertising and travelling lead to the opening of business relations in Europe the Middle East, Far East, the FSU and the USA.
