The convenience store – which runs on 100% renewable electricity – will boast self-service tills, an improved in-store bakery, Costa Coffee point, National Lottery and PayPoint services, alongside a focus on fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas, food-to-go, award winning wines, essentials and the Co-op’s new exclusive plant-based range, GRO.
The revamped Co-op will also bring a funding boost for local good causes through the Co-op’s Membership scheme – Members receive a 5% reward when they swipe their card when buying own-branded products, and the Co-op donates a further 1% to local good causes.
Students holding the TOTUM card (the new name for NUS extra) can also get a 10% discount off their groceries.
Gary Redpath, Co-op area manager, said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to make such a significant investment in our Regent Road store which will help us to better serve the needs of the local community.
“It will have a great new look and range and the team is looking forward to welcoming customers back into the store.”
“We also want customers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op, and that the Co-op gives back to its Members and the community – our Members help us to make a difference locally, raising money for local causes simply by swiping their Membership card when they shop with us.“
