Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

SCHOOL­CHILD­REN were the stars of the show as they helped of­fi­cially open the new look Co­op­er­a­tive Food store in Hurds­field.

The shop on Hurds­field Road has been treated to a £370,000 trans­for­ma­tion.

Pupils from Hurs­ds­field Pri­mary School cut the rib­bon with store man­ager Dawn Jones.

The new-look state-ofthe-art store will fo­cus on meal ideas, healthy, fresh foods and es­sen­tials. It has been redesigned to make it easy and en­joy­able for shop­pers to pick up all their in­gre­di­ents.

The in-store bak­ery has been in­creased in size and scope, and there are ex­tended ranges of fresh pro­duce, ready meals and piz­zas.

The store is also look­ing to be­come a hub of the com­mu­nity, with an in­for­ma­tion board for lo­cal events and de­tails about how groups can ben­e­fit from The Co­op­er­a­tive Mem­ber­ship’s Com­mu­nity Fund, which dis­trib­utes monies to support for good causes.

Dawn Jones, store man­ager, said: “I’m ex­cited about wel­com­ing cus­tomers into the newlook store, which will of­fer a com­pletely dif­fer­ent shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence.

“The Co-oper­a­tive is a com­mu­nity re­tailer, and so we are com­mit­ted to play­ing a real role in lo­cal life.

“I’m de­lighted to wel­come Hurds­field Pri­mary School pupils into the store to share in our spe­cial day.”
