Review: Unicorn Grocery Chorlton

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

I have just been down to Unicorn grocery chorlton and I am always amazed at the range of produce that they have in store.

A bit of history about the place, it was established in 1995 and has rapidly grown to be the UK’s biggest, and in my opinion best whole food outlet.  It is not just me who thinks so The Observer Food Monthly’s named Unicorn ‘Best Independent Shop’ and Radio Four Food Programme’s ‘Best Local Food Retailer in 2008’. The unit they are based in is large for a health food store and that is what initially hits you as you enter.  It is bright and airy allowing customers to browse and buy in comfort.

The focus of the store is on locally produced, fair trade, organic and wholesome foods.  I think one of the major points that has made Unicorn so successful is that the prices are not restrictive, they are highly competitive when compared to the supermarkets. I have found in many cases that the organic, locally grown veg can be slightly cheaper than the supermarkets.  But based on quality there is no comparison, Unicorn win hands down!

The store also owns a plot of land that is a stones throw form the shop itself, which has allowed Unicorn grocery chorlton to produce its own stock.  This stuff looks and tastes amazing.  The range of produce is vast, we have come along way from the health food shops that only carried a very limited range of products.  Unicorn’s product range includes beer, wine, bread and an amazing deli counter!

The thing with Unicorn grocery is that you can go in there and potter around picking out the produce you want, and if your stuck the staff are really friendly and informative.  Get to the check out and be genuinely surprised at how little you have spent.

I would whole heartedly recommend that anyone in the Chorlton area have a look in Unicorn.  You will be very pleasantly surprised!

Thanks to the team at Unicorn for all the hard work and great levels of innovation and development!

I wish you all the best for the future.
