MEET MR PATEL AT BROMPTON NEWS IN STRATFORD - OUR PARCELLY LOCATION OF THE MONTH
Welcome to Brompton News, the local family business that has been operating under the Patel name for over 40 years now! Mr. Punal Patel, the current owner and manager of the store, said he grew up just around the corner and as a kid his parents were the ones who managed the business.
Chosen for being one of our oldest and most loyal Parcelly locations, who take big pride in providing an amazing customer service, Brompton News is a fantastic business partner to work with. We had a great time talking with Mr. Patel and finding out more about him:
So, what is your favourite thing about running the store?
Oh, the best part is the customer interaction. Because we have been here for so long, our customers are usually the same ones who come and buy the same things, and I always have their products on the side, waiting for them to come in. It is always nice to have a chat with them as well!
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
To be honest with you I do not usually have much free time. Managing the store is a full-time job, 7 days a week, but when I get home I like to have some family time, and when the weekend comes I tend to let my kid choose what we are going to do. Whenever we have the time, I plan trips in advance and me and my family also really enjoy going to concerts together.
If you won the lottery with £1 Million to use towards your store, what would you do?
Wow, that is a lot of money! I am always making changes to the store, but I guess I would bring in new things to satisfy my customers. But to be fair, if I won all this money I would employ more people to work here so that I could have more free time to spend with my family...
Location: 72 Leytonstone Road, Stratford, London E15 1SQ
Opening Times: Monday – Saturday: 7:00 – 18:00; Sunday: 7:00 - 14:30
“The Parcelly app is very straightforward and super easy to operate. The customer service is not like with other companies, because you guys are always ready to help me straight away and always call up in advance to let me know of any updates, which is great. Also, 90% of the Parcelly customers collect their parcels on the same day and the check in and check out process is just super fast.”
- Mr. Patel, Store Owner & Manager
