The Co-op is set to open three new food stores in the Worcester area following a £2.25m investment.
A store in Station Road, Honeybourne, opened today and includes an in-store bakery and a focus on fresh, healthy foods and meal ideas. Another store in Barker Street, Worcester opened on 22 March, and was designed as a local hub and an asset for the local community.
Finally, on 6 April 2018, a store in Pershore’s Racecourse Road will reopen, following a £1.1m makeover to transform the store for the community.
Jon Bottomley, area manager for the Co-op’s convenience stores, said: “We have had a great response, and are delighted to have had the opportunity to carry out such a significant investment in and around Worcester – colleagues are really looking forward to welcoming members and customers into their new Co-op stores.
“We are proud to be part of the community, and our ambition is to ensure that all of our stores become a local hub, a real asset for the local community.”
