The Co-op is to open a brand new store in Leeds as part of a £4.3m investment by the retailer in Yorkshire.

Tomorrow the doors will open on the new Co-op store in Sovereign Square, Leeds, following an investment of £500,000. The opening will create 11 new jobs. It will be officially opened by pupils from the Co-operative Academy. The retailer is also opening brand new stores in Harrogate and Ilkley as well as refurbishing existing stores in Drighlington, Crosshills and Leyburn.

John McNeill, the Co-op’s divisional managing director, said: “2016 has been a great year for the Co-op in Yorkshire with stores opening in places such as York, Keighley and Ilkley. It’s very pleasing to be able to round off the year by reaffirming our commitment to the UK’s largest county with new stores launching in the busy metropolitan hubs of Leeds and Harrogate.”
