A community food store in Whitwick - where colleagues have been going above and beyond to support locals during lockdown - has been given a fresh new look following investments totalling over £100,000.
The Central England Co-op store in Market Place has received a raft of updates to give them a fresher, lighter feel and to include several new ranges and features to boost their offering to the local community.
This follows other notable investments by the retailer in the area in recent months, with over £600,000 spent on transformations of stores across Leicestershire including Coalville.
The Whitwick community food store has been undergoing a makeover in recent weeks following an investment of almost £105,000 with changes including:
• An updated product range including improved food to go and chilled alcohol sections
• New features such as brand-new Costa Coffee and Tango Ice Blast machines
• New internal signage and decoration, including a refreshed kiosk area
Store Manager Chris Bass said: “The team are really, really pleased to have had this investment and it has been a real morale boost for everyone.
“The store feels refreshed when you walk in and much bigger. We have some great new ranges and services for our customers, and we have been excited to show them the transformation.
“I would like to thank the community for their patience while the work has been completed but I hope they agree with us that it has been worth it.”
The Market Place Food Store in Whitwick is open Monday-Sunday 7am-10pm.
The store has a wide range of products from everyday necessities to something a little more special and also offers a lifesaving defibrillator, cash machine, Collect Plus/Paypoint, Lottery, in-store bakery and a customer car park.
