The Co-op is set to serve-up a new-look store on Edenfield Road in Norden following a landmark £345,000 overhaul.
Launching this Friday, 24 August, the revamped Co-op will offer a wide range of fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas, award winning wines and essentials along with an in-store bakery.
It is also set to bring a funding boost to local causes through the Co-op’s Membership scheme. Members receive a 5% reward when buying own-branded products, and the Co-op donates a further 1% to local causes.
The community retailer also offers a 10% discount to students in the area holding an NUS card.
Carl England, Co-op store manager, said: “We are delighted to be undertaking such a significant investment in Norden and we’re confident that the improvements will help us to better serve the community. It’s an exciting time for the whole team.”
Alex Price, Co-op area manager, said: “We’re investing in our people, stores, products, prices and communities – our aim is for stores to be at the heart of local life, bringing communities together and offering great quality products, when and where our members and customers need them.
“We also want customers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op. And, that we are also giving back to the community. Our members make a difference locally, simply by swiping their membership card when they shop with us they raise much needed funding for organisations in the area who contribute to improving local life.”
There are offers and promotions in and around the store to mark its launch.
The community retailer – which won the title of Convenience Retailer of the Year at last year’s Retail Industry Awards – recently unveiled a £50m price investment programme to cut the cost of everyday essentials including fruit, vegetables, bread, fresh meat and ready meals, as well as household brand names.
