Co-op opens latest store in Manchester creating 22 jobs

November 25, 2015

The Co-op opened its latest food store in Manchester  following a £560,000 investment in Birley Fields, Hulme. The food store launch forms part of a more than £7.5M investment programme this year by The Co-op to transform and grow its convenience business in Greater Manchester.

The investment in the new store – located by the student halls of residence on the MMU’s Birley Fields campus - has created 22 new jobs for local people. One member of the team will be the store's Community Pioneer, working with the local community to support initiatives that mean something to them. 

Rebecca Howard, Manager of the new Hulme, Birley Fields, Co-op food store, said:

“We are delighted to have made such a significant investment in Hulme to open our latest food store - the store looks fantastic and, it really is an exciting time for the whole team. The Co-op is investing to transform and grow its convenience business, enhancing the in-store experience while lowering the price of everyday essentials. We are confident that the new store will be a real asset to the community, enabling shoppers to pick up delicious food conveniently and, as a community retailer and a co-operative, it will play its part in local life too.”
