Jump to: navigation, search
ABC Retail


Founded in 1952, in Bridiff, by a group of local retailers, led by Arthur Jones, Bryan Caldwell and Charles Smith, ABC was formed to preserve local excellence and customer loyalty in the face of large, anonymous supermarket chains.

ABC has 2 large branches, 5 medium sized-branches and 15 small branches.


ABC is a community retailer, providing high quality goods and services, to discerning customers.


ABC aims to be a community asset, only growing organically, it marries the best old fashioned values of courtesy, high quality, and pride in workmanship with modern efficiency, service excellence and sound corporate citizenship
