Domino’s Pizza, the UK’s leading pizza delivery company, opened its first store inside a Tesco Extra yesterday October 17, 2011. Located on Town Gate Retail Park in Dudley, the new store has created 15 local jobs.
Domino’s new Dudley store offers a wide menu of pizzas for collection and includes a ‘ready to go’ option enabling customers to pick up a pizza straight away after doing their shopping. Pizza lovers can also order ahead in person at the store or by phone, online or using Domino’s iPhone, iPad and Android apps to ensure their favourite pizza is piping hot and ready for them to collect at a time to suit them.
Chris Moore, chief executive of Domino’s Pizza, said: “Opening our first store with Tesco was a landmark day for us. We are excited to be able to reach a new market with this concept, which offers shoppers the convenience of being able to order a pizza in advance and pick it up on their way home.”
Steve Goswell, store manager of Tesco Extra Dudley, said: “We are delighted to be joining forces with Domino’s. The opening day was a great success and their piping hot pizza was well received by lots of hungry shoppers here at Tesco Extra Dudley.”
The store is open daily, from 11am – 11pm Monday to Saturday, and 11am – 4pm on Sundays. For more information on Domino’s, log onto http://www.dominos.co.uk.
