CO-OP TO SERVE-UP NEW SALFORD STORE AND 20 NEWLY CREATED JOBS IN ‘QUAY’ LOCATION


Business News

The Co-op is set to serve-up its newest food store with a “quay” location in Salford this week (Friday, 2 August) following a near £750,000 investment creating 20 jobs.

The 2,500 sq.ft. Clippers Quay store located close to the waterfront will have a food-to-go focus including a Costa coffee dispenser and in-store bakery, which sits alongside its fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas, hot food, sandwiches, award-winning wines and essentials.

The store will run on 100% renewable electricity and brings a funding boost though the Co-op’s Membership scheme, where Members receive a 5% reward when they purchase own brand products and services, with the Co-op giving a further 1% to local causes.

The Co-op also offers a 10% discount off groceries to students holding the NUS extra (TOTUM) card to support them during their studies.

The new store will also offer compostable carriers as an environmentally friendly alternative for customers who forget their bag for life. The not for profit bags, priced at 5p, are the same price as the single use plastic bags that they replace.

Paul Griffin, Co-op Area Manager, said:

"We are delighted to have had the opportunity to make such further significant investment in the region. It is a superb location which is benefitting from inward investment and re-development and we look forward to serving and meeting the food needs of both the community and, visitors to the area.

"The store will have a great look and range, it’s all about getting closer to our members and customers, providing what they want, need and care about, conveniently.

"Our aim is for the store to operate at the heart of local life. We also want customers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op, and that the Co-op gives back to its Members and the community - our Members help us to make a difference locally, raising money for local causes simply by swiping their Membership card when they shop with us."

The Co-op was awarded the title of “Grocer of the Year” last month at The Grocer Gold Awards.
