Chapleys celebrate 70 years in business with new innovations
Adelaide’s Finest Supermarkets founder Nick Chapley, known affectionately as Mr Nick, is celebrating 70 years in retail with new innovations and investments in his family’s award-winning stores.
Nick Chapley, alongside his son Spero Chapley who is celebrating his 30th year in the family business, have plans underway for range of new innovations including investing in regenerative urban agriculture at their stores, a new fresh seafood experience and an events program to make their stores tourism destinations in their own right.
Plans are also underway to further expand Youth Inc. - a fully registered independent secondary school established by the Chapley family to provide education pathways for young people who’ve disengaged with the traditional school system.
The family is also looking for a suitable location to open another Foodland store.
Hughes worked with the family to tell their story and announce their new plans through a story that appeared recently in the Sunday Mail - subscribers can read the online article here.
