Henleaze Co-op relaunches after revamp
THE Co-op served-up an improved food store in Henleaze on May 13 following an £845,000 refurbishment.
The 3,000 sq ft store which closed for two months during the refit now runs on 100% renewable energy and supports 17 local jobs.
Located on Henleaze Road, the transformed store is open from 7am-10pm, seven days a week. It has an increased range and choice of fresh produce, ready meals and pizzas, award-winning wines, free-from and vegan products, Fairtrade, food-to-go, baked goods and everyday essentials. As part of the relaunch, the store now also has more self-scanning tills available for shoppers who are on the go.
Greg Yuill, Co-op area manager, said: “We are extremely proud to be relaunching our Henleaze store with a fresh new-look and an increased offer. We have worked hard to develop product ranges and services that will create a really compelling offer for the community and provide an even more convenient, quality way to shop than before.”
Alex Cockburn, Co-op store manager, said: “Our store is committed to connecting communities and making a difference locally. Our aim is to operate at the heart of local life and we are looking forward to welcoming customers old and new into the store now that we have finished the improvements – a big thank you to everyone for their support and patience. We’re also really excited to offer online shopping through Deliveroo and have an Amazon Counter in-store for customers and members needing a safe place to hold their deliveries when they’re not at home.”
Co-op’s Community Shopping Card makes it easier for those self-isolating or who have been instructed to stay at home to shop and pay for their essentials. Cards can be purchased or topped-up by calling 0800 029 4592 - enabling friends, families, neighbours or volunteers to shop on their behalf in store.
The store provides a funding boost locally and saves shoppers money through its Co-op membership scheme. In addition to personalised offers, members are rewarded with 2p in every pound they spend on Co-op branded products added to their own membership account balance. The Co-op also donates a further 2p to local causes. Information about Co-op Membership is available at: www.coop.co.uk/membership
