Co-op to open 30 new stores before Christmas

New openings in transport hubs, city locations and residential developments follow continued growth at UK's sixth-largest grocer.

The Co-op is opening 30 new stores in the lead up to Christmas following recent growth for the retailer.

A £25 million investment has funded store openings across the UK in November and December, including sites at transport hubs, city locations and residential apartments, creating up to 500 jobs.

The expansion follows continued sales growth at the retailer, which saw year-on-year consumer spend rise by 3.6 per cent in the 12 weeks to 1 December.

New stores are opening their doors in places such as London, Edinburgh, Bristol, Cambridge, Salford and Sheffield.

Among other things, the new Co-op stores have a focus on fresh, chilled and healthy products; food to go; vegan and free-from foods; Fairtrade products; and meal ideas.
