Pupils cut ribbon at new Co-op store
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.”
