The Co-op opens between 7am-10pm daily and includes customer car parking, a bakery, Amazon Click & Collect and a Costa Coffee express.

The store also has an improved focus on fresh, healthy produce, ready meals and pizzas, award-winning wines, free-from and vegan products, Fairtrade, food-to-go and, everyday essentials.

Students in Leyland who are TOTUM cardholders – the new name for NUS extra – can pocket a 10% discount off groceries at the Co-op.

Contactless card payment limits are increased to £45, making it easier, quicker and safer to shop.
