Our History


Late Akberali Abdeali, the pioneer along with a business partner, first embarked into retailing in Chiswick, London, back in 1971.


In deciding to go at it alone, Late Akberali opened his first retail shop in Slough in October 1973. The family business steadily grew over the years with further expansion into rental properties.


Iqbal, Late Aqeel and Ashiq, Akberali’s sons, joined forces and opened Chalvey DIY Centre and Al’s Café in Chalvey. Soon after, the family took over the local supermarket and renamed it as ‘Chalvey Supermarket’.


To further grow the family’s business and diversify their services in Slough, ‘Complete Party Services’ was launched.


The comprehensive redevelopment of what is now known as Alexandra Plaza saw the enlargement of Chalvey Supermarket, making it Slough’s largest independent food supermarket.


Complete Party Services soon outgrew their premises in Chalvey, and relocated to Farnham Road in January 2000 and has been Slough’s largest party store ever since.


Twenty Years on, Checkout Superstore has now opened. The store will accommodate Complete Party Services, rebranded as Checkout Party on the First Floor, thus continuing in the families strive to be leaders in the retail service sector. Now, with the help of the younger generation in our family including; Ali, Mudassir, Abbas, Aadil and Asgar
