Co-op is set to reopen its Holmer Road, Hereford, petrol filling station and store this week (Friday, 20 November) following a £1.7m 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: Costa coffee express, 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. There are also Amazon Lockers and customer car parking,
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.'
