Quality Save has been a part of the Barnsley community for many years. Opening a 2nd store in 2015 on Harbourgh Hills retail park.

Store Manager Marie says..
"I have worked for quality save now for 11 and a half years, I have only worked in Barnsley Retail for 6 months after previously working in Barnsley for 11 of those years. I started as a work placement and have worked myself up the ranks to a store manager. Moving to Barnsley Retail has been a massive change for me and it took a awhile to get used to running a slightly smaller store but I feel as if it has been a good thing for me so I can work on my daily tasks more efficiently. Its also nice to meet new customers too as it’s a bit of a different mix of shoppers on a retail park. I love my job and the staff that I work with’ "

Assistant Manager Kat Says.. "I joined Quality Save as a supervisor when Barnsley Retail opened in June 2015. In April 2017 I stepped up as acting assistant manager, initially just for a few weeks due to some "temporary" staff swaps between the Barnsley stores. Jan 2018 and still in the role, I was officially promoted and have remained in the position ever since. In the 4 1/2 years we have been open our customers and doubled and staff numbers with it. That together with the changes that have been implemented by the company, and the recent changes in management means the role is constantly changing and growing. I enjoy (most!) aspects of the job, and always like to push myself and others to achieve the best for the store. I'm pretty competitive too always pushing to exceed targets, and as those who know me will attest to, I always have a spreadsheet to hand to track this. Love a good spreadsheet haha’"
