Just four months after Spudulike branches closed across the country when the company collapsed, the store at McArthur Glen’s East Midlands Designer Outlet has reopened.

It is one of a number of branches acquired and reopened by potato specialist Albert Bartlett.

Jonathan Hoodless, Spudulike director of operations, said: “We’re reopening with some exciting changes I know our customers will love.’’

As part of the reopening programme, Albert Bartlett is introducing its own potatoes, a new dessert menu, a barista-style coffee selection, responsibly sourced ingredients, such as line-caught tuna, and eco-friendly packaging.

Mr Hoodless said: “We’re delighted to be bringing back Spudulike with better quality, sensibly priced potatoes.

“For reopening, we’re concentrating on getting the basics spot on: we listened carefully to what our customers want and so we know we’ve got some crowd pleasers in store, like great prices, better quality and responsible sourcing.”
