Cash investment gives a boost to Co-op store

Have your say

A FOOD store in Normanton has received a £470k boost.

The Co-operative has invested the money into its West Street business.

The store has gained a new kiosk, eco-friendly fridges and freezers, a new layout and improved signage.

Six new jobs will be created.

The store’s ranges of fruit and vegetables, higher welfare meat and fish and freshly baked breads will remain, with the shop’s bakery increasing its range.

The store will continue to support Fairtrade foods.

Graham Winspear, manager of The Co-operative food store in Normanton, said: “We operate in the heart of the community and by doing so provide an ideal location for people to shop locally.

“It is important that we continue to meet people’s needs and provide a welcoming environment in which to shop.

“Upgrading the store will freshen up the shopping experience and improve the vitality of Normanton as a destination.”

To celebrate the reopening of the new-look store yesterday, youngsters from All Saints CE Infants School joined staff to cut the ribbon.

The Co-operative will be staging a series of events and promotions from 10am until 4pm tomorrow.

Shoppers can try their luck on scratch cards for a chance to win prizes from The Co-operative’s family of businesses, including a holiday worth £1,000, electrical items and food vouchers, and they will have the chance to win their shopping in the store.

The Co-operative gives profits back to members through the Membership scheme.

The store’s opening hours are 7am-10pm Monday to Saturday and 10am-4pm Sunday.
