Leverton and Halls, the organic deli and café on Maryvale road in Bournville, has completed its refurbishment and is relaunching to further enhance Bournville’s growing reputation as a local food ‘hot spot’. Whilst still offering a deli Leverton and Halls have expanded their café and even offer free wifi to their customers
The relaunch received funding support from Birmingham City Council’s Retail Development Programme. This programme supports the growth and development of the independent retail sector with money from the Working Neighbourhoods Fund.
Along with Rossiters, Birmingham’s first organic butcher and the Cotteridge-based artisan baker Loaf, Leverton and Halls have to provide a unique offer to compete against the big chains. “We started out as an organic grocers with a small coffee shop but the re-launch reflects our development into a full service café serving fresh, home-made, organic and free range food,” says Dee Leverton. “Customers will find it easier to get a table and the place is much more attractive.”
There will be a more focused range of organic and free range groceries and vegetables but the biggest change will be the café which has been redesigned to give more space in response to increasing demand. As well as a smart new refit for the main room, Dee and Paul Leverton have made space for some extra tables right in the front window of the shop. And in a nod to the digital world the improvements include free wi-fi to attract mobile workers and web surfers.
Leverton and Halls re-opened on Tuesday 16th March 2010 and is hosting a re-launch reception on Friday 26th March 2010 7pm – 9pm.
