Co-op has served up a new-look food store in Hereford (Thursday, 10, September) following a £1.5M investment to transform its Grandstand Road outlet.

The 11,500 sq ft Co-op store – which includes a Peacock’s clothing concession – supports 45 local jobs, and runs on 100% renewable electricity.

Following a 10 week programme of works, the new-look transformed Co-op includes Costa coffee express, Amazon Lockers, free customer car parking and enhanced bakery, alongside an increased focus on fresh, heathy produce, award winning wines, ready meals and pizzas, free-from and vegan products, Fairtrade, food-to-go and, everyday essentials.

From the 22 October the store will offer a new click & collect service, with collections available in as little as two hours through Co-op’s own online shop ( – providing quick, safe and easy shopping locally where customers can be in and out conveniently.

Gareth Jones, Co-op Store Manager, said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to make such a significant investment in Hereford. We have had a great response. We have worked hard to create a truly compelling offer locally with added services, ease and convenience – 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 that they can make a difference to local causes every time they swipe their Membership card when buying own branded products.”

Contactless card payment limits are increased to £45, making it easier, quicker and safer to shop.

Students who are TOTUM cardholders – the new name for NUS extra – can pocket a 10% discount off groceries at the Co-op.

The retailer’s Food Share scheme works to minimise food waste and make a difference locally, supporting local not-for-profit organisations who work to tackle food insecurity and share food with those in need in the community.

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, neighbours or volunteers to shop on their behalf in store.

Co-op is owned by around 4.6M active Members, and alongside Food, it operates: Co-op Funeralcare, Insurance, Health and Legal Services.
