Co-op to opening Leicestershire store next month

Central England Co-operative can today reveal the launch date of its brand new Food Store in Bottesford which will bring over 20 new jobs to the local area.

The Society will officially open its new store in Grantham Road on Friday, 11 October, with a special ribbon cutting ceremony with local schoolchildren marking the occasion.

Shoppers will have the opportunity to grab a free Costa Coffee when they register an email address to celebrate the launch of the new store, while the first 150 customers through the door will also be able to take home a free loaf of bread.

The store will offer a wide range of products from everyday necessities to something a little more special.

This includes fresh and fruit and vegetables, an in-store bakery offering breads and pastries, chilled beers and wines, fresh and frozen product, Irresistible product ranges, Costa Coffee machine and a great selection of food to go.

Grantham Road Central England Co-operative Store Manager Tom Watson said, “This is a very exciting time for everyone in the team and preparations for the big day are well under way.'

The Grantham Road Co-operative food store will be open from 7am to 10pm, Monday to Sunday.
