Bargain Booze

Company Overview

Bargain Booze is an award winning drinks retailer comprising of over 600 retail outlets and c.400 Franchisees throughout the UK. We operate under five fascias; Bargain Booze, Select Convenience, Bargain B’s, Thorougoods and Wine Rack. Our Select Convenience and Thorougoods brands have the same great value and low prices as Bargain Booze but benefit from an extensive convenience offering.

Franchise Overview

Bargain Booze has operated as a retail fascia since 1988, and Select Convenience since 2007.

Despite our stores being predominantly North West based, we do trade from Newcastle, down Ramsgate, over to Newquay and back up to Carlisle. We are continually expanding, making us the biggest off-licence chain in the UK and are also present in Scotland under our dedicated fascia Bargain B’s.

We are a Franchise led business, but do own a number of company owned stores which are available to purchase and run as a franchise.
