Jenkins Bakery opens new shop in Briton Ferry

The Jenkins Bakery chain of shops is expanding yet again.
The latest Jenkins Bakery shop has opened in Briton Ferry in the borough of Neath Port Talbot.
It is the 29th Jenkins Bakery shop and the fourth new outlet to be opened by the firm in the last 14 months.
“The last year or so has seen one of our fastest periods of expansion,” said David Jenkins, Commercial Director at the Llanelli-based business.
“We have great confidence in our product range and we are delighted to find that what we produce strikes a welcoming chord with our customers.
“Our roots as a company are in Llanelli, but we continue to expand where we see markets for our products. The Briton Ferry shop is following closely on the heels of a new shop in Porthcawl town centre and another in Portmead, Swansea.
“We are delighted to be expanding once again. As a third-generation family business, we care passionately about what we do. We pride ourselves on being in touch with our customers and it is a hugely exciting time for us to be opening this new venture in Briton Ferry.
“Our company history dates back to 1921, but we don’t rest on our laurels here at Jenkins. We have a proud tradition and reputation as a company, but we always have one eye on the future – and this latest new shop represents an investment in the future.”
The new shop is at Unit 2, Neath Road, Briton Ferry, SA11 2AX. The Jenkins Bakery chain of retail outlets now covers a sizeable area in South Wales, from Bridgend and Porthcawl in the east to Carmarthen in the west and north to Ystradgynlais in Powys.
Jenkins Bakery Operations Director Russell Jenkins said the Briton Ferry shop was well located.
“We are right next door to the new Tesco store and on a busy road with plenty of passing trade. It’s the sort of place that’s easy to nip in and out to do a quick bit of shopping.
“The new shop is managed by Victoria McGimpsey, who actually started work as a ‘Saturday girl’ in our Port Talbot shop before loving to join a large supermarket. We are delighted to have Victoria and the team at Briton Ferry on board.
“We still have a few part-time vacancies for sales assistants and when these are filled we will have created seven new jobs.”
