Co-op store manager Jessica Payne said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to carry out a programme of works and improvements to better serve our community. We are looking forward to welcoming the community back into their new-look Co-op. Our aim is to operate at the heart of local life and we have worked to develop the range, choice and added services to create a compelling offer to serve the community conveniently.”

With sustainability in mind, Co-op installed a soft plastic recycling unit inside the store to encourage recycling.

Customers can dispose of crisp packets, bread bags, lids from ready meals, yoghurt pots, biscuit wrappers and pet food pouches in the unit.

Earlier this year, the company reopened its redesigned Gourock store in Scotland and established a new location in Havant, UK.
