Co-op set to serve-up new Coventry store

Co-op is serving-up a new store in Coventry this week following a £650,000 investment by the convenience retailer, creating 12 local jobs.

The new-look 2,200 sq ft Co-op store – located in Fairfax Street –  opens on Friday, 9, October, and runs on 100% renewable electricity.

It includes Amazon Lockers, hot food, a bakery and Costa coffee express 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. Deliveries can also be made through Deliveroo, with Co-op the most widely available supermarket on the Deliveroo App.

Ben Bennett, Co-op Area Manager, said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to make such a significant investment, the store has a great look and feel, and we have worked to develop the range, choice, products and services locally that will create a really compelling offer, conveniently.

“We are committed to connecting communities and making a difference locally, and to operating 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.”

Co-op also provides a funding boost locally and saves shoppers money through its re-launched membership scheme. In addition to personalised offers and exclusive in-store deals, Members are rewarded with 2p in every pound they spend on Co-op branded products added to their Membership account balance. The retailer also shares a further 2% with community causes – double what it had shared before. As well as unlocking value in food stores, Members are eligible for discounts across the Co-op, with savings also made on funerals, insurance policies and legal products and services.

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

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

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. More information about the Co-op is available by visiting https://www.coop.co.uk
