Co-op to serve-up new-look Holmer Road petrol station with new, larger, food store

Co-op is set to re-open its Holmer Road, Hereford, petrol filling station and store this week (Friday, 20 November) following a £1.7Million programme of works to overhaul the fuel infrastructure and build a new, larger, food store.

The investment in the Co-op’s A49 24-hour site – which supports 25 local jobs – has seen new fuel tanks, pumps, canopy and forecourt layout, while the store’s retail space has almost trebled in size to over 2,900 sq. ft. to create a compelling convenience offer.

The new-look store now includes: Amazon Lockers, customer car parking, Costa coffee express and, in-store bakery, alongside a focus on fresh, healthy produce, ready meals and pizzas, award-winning wines, free-from and vegan products, Fairtrade, food-to-go and, everyday essentials.

Craig Emery, Co-op Area Manager, said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to make such a significant investment in our Holmer Road store – we have undertaken an extensive programme of works to enhance the fuel and food offer locally – the store really does have a great look, format and feel. We have worked to develop the range, choice, products and services that will create a really compelling offer locally, and I am confident the improvements will enable Co-op to better serve the community.

“Co-op is 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 the Co-op. In addition to unlocking additional value and personalised offers, our Members make a difference to local causes, with Co-op now donating 2% to community causes every time a Member swipes their Membership card when buying own branded products.”

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. While the store’s Food Share scheme works to minimise food waste and make a difference locally by supporting local not-for-profit organisations who work to tackle food insecurity.

Co-op provides a funding boost locally and saves shoppers money through its re-launched membership scheme. Members are rewarded with 2p in every pound they spend on Co-op branded products added to their Membership account balance. The Co-op also donates a further 2% to community causes.

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