The Co-operative Group to open new food store in Bishopston

Manchester, 2014-4-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Co-operative Group has announced plans to open a new food store in Bishopston.

It has agreed a deal to open a new store following planning approval to undertake an extensive re-development of a former convenience store on the site near Bishopston Primary School.  It is expected that around ten new full and part time jobs will be created.

Construction work will commence in late April, and the new store is expected to open later this year. It will have a sales area of around 2,000 sq ft.

John Hillman, Regional Acquisitions Manager for The Co-operative Food in Wales, said:

“A convenience store with a strong emphasis on fresh produce will enable us to build upon an established customer base and provide an even better service for the community. The location is ideal for us, and we are very confident the new store will be an asset to the village and wider area.”
