Co-op Food welcomes four new stores in February
February was a busy month for the Food Property team – we opened four new shops and exchanged contracts on just under 30 sites.
The four new shops – Cricklewood (north London), Ancaster (Lincolnshire), Longton (Staffordshire) and Moira (Derbyshire) – represent an investment of nearly £2.5 million and bring us four steps closer to reaching our target of around 100 new stores by the end of the year.
Spotlight on Stoke-on-Trent
Our store is built on the car park next to a pub in Longton. Children from a local primary school were the guests of honour at the store’s opening and we’ve seen a really positive response from both colleagues and the local community.
