Co-op serves-up new London store in Islington

Co-op serves-up a new London food store in Islington (Friday, 14 August), following a £650,000 investment.

The store – located in Holloway Road – supports 16 local jobs, and runs on 100% renewable electricity.

Opening between 7am-11pm, the store will include hot food, coffee and in-store bakery alongside a focus on fresh, heathy produce, award winning wines, ready meals and pizzas, free-from and vegan products, Fairtrade, food-to-go and, everyday essentials.

The Co-op provides a funding boost locally and gives back to causes in the area through its Membership scheme, where Members receive a 5% reward on purchases of own brand products, and Co-op donates a further 1% to community causes.

Contactless card payment limits are increased to £45, making it easier, quicker and safer to shop. The retailer’s Food Share scheme works to minimise food waste and make a difference locally, working with local not-for-profit organisations to share food with those in need in the community.

While the 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 or volunteers to shop on their behalf in store.

Valentine Obamwonyi, Co-op Area Manager, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to make such a significant investment, the store has a great new look and feel – and we are looking forward to serving the community. Co-op is committed to connecting communities and making a difference locally, and our aim is to operate at the heart of local life. That is why we also want customers to know that they can become a Member of their Co-op, and they can make a difference locally every time they swipe their Membership card when buying own branded products.”
