As a reader of this forum, I was wondering if I could do a little market research. I have been working for the last few years with a French Wine Merchant and we are looking to establish ourselves in the UK with some high street shops and an online presence. Being from Hertford originally, I was looking at opening the first shop in the town.
We would look to stock mainly small producer European Wine, a small selection of new world wine, domestic and imported craft beer along with a small line of French, Japanese and Scottish Whiskies and some other spirits. I know that Hertford already has a selection of convenience stores, supermarkets and a Majestic that provide a range of selection of wine for various palettes.
Do you feel that this addition to the Hertford Wine scene would be welcomed and used, or do you think that the general wine requirements of Hertford residents are already taken care of with the present outlet offerings ?
