AFC Bournemouth’s club store is set for expansion at the end of the season.

The Cherries submitted plans to extend the club shop at Dean Court in October last year (click here), the proposals showed a large extension to the current club store to be built on land in between the main stand and the North Stand.

Official approval from the relevant authorities has been received according to afcb.co.uk and AFC Bournemouth retail manager Barry Evans is looking forward to the development.

He told the club website…

It will make our overall image as a retail outlet as competitive as Championship, and possibly even some Premier league clubs, The overall view of the shop from the outside will look really good and this can only help to promote bringing people in to the shop…’

‘…There will be more linear footage available to us as a retail unit so we can look at increasing ranges – which we have already started doing.

“It will also enable us to have a form of a warehouse, and your shop floor is only as good as your warehouse because if you can`t get access to your stock in there easily, you can miss a sale.’
