Central England Co-op opens new £1.85m plus store

Central England Co-op has just officially opened its new £1.85m store in Warsop, Nottinghamshire, creating 15 new jobs.

The new store in Mansfield Road is powered by 100% renewable energy. Features of the store include self-scan till points, a full range of products, indoor and outdoor seating areas, a customer car park and customer toilets.

A food bank collection point has also been installed to support the great work of Sherwood Forest Food Bank as it continues to manage the increased demand caused by the Coronavirus outbreak.

Store Manager Natalie Smith said, “It is great to finally open our doors to the local community as the team have been desperate to support our neighbours and ensure they can access food and essentials during the pandemic.

“All of us here at the new store are proud to be part of such a great community in Warsop so we are delighted to be able to support Sherwood Forest Food Bank which is offering a lifeline to vulnerable residents and people struggling in these testing times.

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank local residents for their patience while we have been bringing the store to life. It has been long-awaited, but hopefully everyone will enjoy the store as much as we do.”

The store offers fresh fruit and vegetables, an in-store bakery offering breads and pastries, chilled beers and wines, fresh and frozen product, Irresistible product ranges, as well as a great selection of food to go, including hot food.

Open from 7am to 10pm, Monday to Sunday, the new outlet also offers a Costa Coffee machine and Tango Ice Blast machine.
