Fruitique has served the "Bishyroad" community supplying top quality fresh produce for over 60 years in one form or another, being in fact one of the first "self service" shops in York. This was a major decision at the time, taken by the then owner Mr Sadler, who retired in 2004. Fruitique has always traded on old fashioned values, quality produce and good service. This is still true to this day, with many of the staff still here after thirty years of service including Joyce, who is the longest serving member.
Fruitique's ongoing policy is to support local trades and growers where possible, which enables them to follow the seasons, supplying good quality local goods, including fresh salads and a great range of local vegetables. They also stock a large range of UK apples and pears, as and when the season allows, whilst the local strawberry grower they use produces probably the best soft fruits in Yorkshire (Kevin Voakes of Acaster Malbis). Their remaining products are sourced from all over the world.
The wealth of knowledge available within the staff members enables them to offer all kinds of advice from product suggestions, recipes, even down to how to cook your chosen product. So if you want good quality produce, served in a proper professional manner then call in and see the team soon at Fruitique and you'll be pleasantly suprised. The team members include: Kevin, Joyce, Judi, Anita, Lesley, Diane, Carol and their latest member to join the team, - Josh who will be pleased to greet you on Sundays (10am till 4pm).
A delivery service is available within the local area Monday to Friday.
LOYALTY SCHEME: "Spend and Save." Frutique has a popular loyalty scheme which enables you to save as you spend in the old fashioned way. You can collect stickers to exchange for £5.00 worth of goods of your choice when your loyalty card is completed.
WHOLESALE SERVICE: Kevin also provides a full wholesale service. F.N.T. DIRECT can supply and deliver to pubs, nursing homes, hotels, cafes and restaurants, all at very competitive prices. For more information on wholesale supply, call Kevin on 01904 635821.
