The Co-op has served up a new food store in Harrogate following a £550,000 investment that has created 12 jobs.
The new store, located on Knaresborough Road, has in-store bakery.
Matt Smith, Co-op Store Manager, said:
We are delighted to have the opportunity to carry out such a significant investment in Harrogate, and we are really looking forward to serving the local community. Our ambition is to ensure the store is a local hub, a real asset for the community.
Caron Metcalfe, Area Manager for the Co-op, said:
The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum. We are investing in our people, stores, products and prices and have the ambition for our stores to be at the heart of local life, bringing communities together and offering our great quality products when and where shoppers need them. We also want customers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op. And, that we are also giving back to the community.
Our members make a difference locally, simply by swiping their membership card when they shop with us they are raising much needed funding for organisations in the area who contribute to improving local life.
The Co-op plans to open 100 new stores UK-wide in 2018.
