Co-op to open two new stores in Wales, following £1.2m investment


Co-op is set to serve-up two new stores in Wales this week (Friday, 18, September) with a combined £1.2m investment creating up to 30 local jobs.

Located in Hawarden Road, Penyffordd – next to the Millstone Public House – and in Walter Road, Swansea, both stores will run on 100% renewable electricity and include Amazon Lockers, Costa coffee express and a bakery, alongside a focus on fresh, heathy produce, award winning wines, ready meals and pizzas, free-from and vegan products, Fairtrade, food-to-go and, everyday essentials.

Paul Chudley, Co-op regional manager, said: “We are delighted to continue our investment programme in Wales which is creating new stores in communities, while transforming our existing sites – this includes the introduction of additional services, such as Amazon Lockers, Costa coffee and the phased roll-out of our own online shop alongside our work with partners including Deliveroo and John Lewis Click & Collect, to develop a really compelling convenience offer locally.

“Co-op is committed to connecting communities and making a difference locally, and our aim is to operate at the heart of local life. That is why we also want customers to know that they can become a Member of their Co-op, and that they can make a difference to local causes every time they swipe their Membership card when buying own branded products.”
