Ten Years of CK Foodstores


The 2023/24 season celebrates 10 years of partnership with CK Foodstores as a kit partner. Over the past decade CK’s have been included on some iconic Scarlets kits and will forever be remembered as a kit partner during our triumphant title winning season in 2016/17. 

During their time as a partner CK Foodstores have grown to become a staple store for consumers across South-West Wales with over 30 stores throughout the region. CK’s prides itself on supporting the local community selling locally sourced products. CK’s have taken an active role in working with local charities and sponsoring events as well as teaming up with the Scarlets Community Foundation to provide tickets and support for those in need. 

Scarlets Head of Commercial, Garan Evans, said: 

“We are thrilled that CK Foodstores will be continuing as the Scarlets back of shorts sponsor and as sponsors of the West stand for the upcoming season. 

We have had a special partnership with CK Foodstores over the past 10 years. In our industry, it is rare to see such long standing relationships between sponsors and clubs, but CK’s have stood by the Scarlets during the heights of the club’s success and the extremely challenging economic climate we faced during Covid-19. 

It has been a pleasure to work closely with CK’s and witness how much they have developed over the past decade. The work they do within the local communities is a credit to the business. 

We look forward to welcoming Alun and the CK’s team back to Parc y Scarlets for the new season and seeing our partnership grow even further”

Alun Littlejohns, Director Of Retail Operations at CK Foodstores, said: 

It’s hard to believe that as we look forward to the start of the 2023/24 season, that we’ve been backing the boys for a whole decade. 

A fantastic decade too, some major triumphs, some extraordinary moments on the Parc and we’ve been there, on the back of the shorts for every game. 

Over the decade, we’ve also welcomed hundreds of CK customers to the Parc, often for the first time, seen Scarlets players in our stores, as well as on film, in training, flipping pancakes or even carving pumpkins! and of course we are the official “Regional Partner” for the world famous custard slice, a product so beloved by the much missed CK ambassador and Scarlets match day announcer, Andrew “Tommo” Thomas . 

Let’s hope our tenth year is another year to celebrate.. we’re right behind you! ”

We’d like to thank CK Foodstores for their continued support over the past 10 years and we look forward to continuing our partnership as they continue to sponsor the West stand and occupy the back of shorts kit slot.
