Co-op to serve up new-look £1.5m Hereford store

Co-op is set to serve-up a new-look food store in Hereford following a £1.5M investment to transform its Grandstand Road store.

The 11,500 sq ft Co-op store – which includes a Peacock’s clothing concession – supports 45 local jobs, and runs on 100% renewable electricity.

Re-launching on Thursday, 10 September, after a 10 week programme of works, the new-look Co-op includes Costa coffee express, Amazon Lockers, free customer car parking and enhanced bakery, alongside an increased focus on fresh, heathy produce, award-winning wines, ready meals and pizzas, free-from and vegan products, Fairtrade, food-to-go and, everyday essentials. With all of the Co-op’s own-brand meat 100% British, including in its sandwiches, pies and ready meals.

From the 22 October the store will offer a new click & collect service, with collections available in as little as two hours through Co-op’s own online shop (coop.co.uk/shop) – providing quick, safe and easy shopping locally where customers can be in and out conveniently.

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 retailer’s Food Share scheme works to minimise food waste and make a difference locally, supporting local not-for-profit organisations who work to tackle food insecurity and share food with those in need in the community.

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, enabling friends, families, neighbours or volunteers to shop on their behalf in store.

Gareth Jones, Co-op Store Manager, said, “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to make such a significant investment in Hereford, transforming the store with a great new look and offer to better serve the community.

“Co-op is committed to connecting communities and making a difference locally, and our aim is to operate 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.”

The Co-op picked up the Convenience Retailer of the Year and Food-to-go Retailer of the Year titles at the latest Retail Industry Awards.

Co-op is owned by around 4.6 million active Members, and alongside Food, it operates: Co-op Funeralcare, Insurance, Health and Legal Services
