from construction to retail for dynamic duo in halesowen
brothers george and gary hawkes have swapped road construction for the retail floor after opening a cash generator store in the city centre.
investing in halesowen, the entrepreneurial pair are looking forward to their new venture in discount retail, offering local shoppers a fair deal on a selection of new and nearly new products. since opening their store in july, the owners have enjoyed a successful start.
george (47) and gary (36) are not strangers to hard work, having previously owned a road construction company. demonstrating his entrepreneurial flair, gary started the company when he was just 21, to be joined by his brother eight years ago, when he graduated from university.
george comments: “gary and i really enjoy working together so when i considered a new venture, it seemed obvious to embark on it with him. i felt i was getting a little too old for the late nights and heavy duty work that comes with road construction so cash generator is going to be a great new experience for me.
“halesowen has a wonderful high street that we are proud to invest in, and the local community has been extremely welcoming. with its many different services, cash generator will make life easier for the people of halesowen, by providing everything on their doorstep.”
george and gary have no plans to rest on their laurels. now their first store is open, they are already looking at sites for further stores across the region in the future.
julian urry, managing director of cash generator, commented: “gary and george are a welcome addition to the cash generator franchise network, bringing with them a wealth of business experience. i am confident that they will fulfil their ambitions in halesowen.”
“现金生成器”(cash generator)执行董事朱莉安·乌瑞(julian urry)说，“‘现金生成器’(cash generator)非常欢迎盖瑞和乔治的加入，他们的加入给整个系统带来了新鲜空气。我相信他们会在哈利苏文实现自己的雄心壮志。”
