On Friday 25th April – an online supermarket for British expats, celebrated their 15th birthday.

British Corner Shop was first established in 1999, and was taken over by the current Managing Director, Mark Callaghan in 2004. Since this time the company has gown considerably and has an annual turnover of £6.5M.

Mark Callaghan says: “The business started out with just me and business partner Matt Casey. We did it all, from picking and packing, to marketing and procurement. 15 years on and we have a team of over 25 people, 20,000 square foot of warehousing and 1.5 million page views per month on the website.”

According Mark the demand for British products abroad is on the rise, with no sign of it slowing down.

“With over 100,000 customers to date BCS has become the leading supermarket supplying the British expat community. Annually we deliver over 3 million products to over 130 countries, and expect this growth to continue for the foreseeable future.”

British Corner Shop celebrated their business milestone on Friday 25th April, with competitions and giveaways for customers, both on the website and on their social media pages.

Mark added: “Without the support and feedback we receive from our customers we wouldn’t be where we are today, so we have organised competitions and promotions to help fans of BCS celebrate with us.”
