The Co-operative to open new food store in Aldridge
The Co-operative Group has announced plans to open a new food store in Aldridge.
It has agreed a deal to relocate its existing small convenience store, on Walsall Wood Road, Aldridge, Walsall, to a new larger unit at the site of the former Cedar Tree public house opposite.
Existing staff will transfer to the new store, and it is expected that around eight new jobs will be created.
Subject to construction work progressing as planned, and to the necessary licensing being obtained, the new store is expected to open later this year. It will have a sales area of around 2,500 sq ft, and car parking for 20 customers.
Paresh Pancholi, Regional Acquisitions Manager for The Co-operative Food in the central and eastern regions, said:
“A new larger store on Walsall Wood Road will allow us to provide an even better service for our customers. The location is ideal for us, and we are very confident the new store will be an asset to Aldridge.”
