MOSSLEY CO-OP on Arundel Street has fully re-opened after a £600,000 investment and the creation of up to seven new jobs.
And three local community groups are further celebrating after sharing a £6,000 plus windfall from the store.
An eight-week programme of works has seen the Co-op receive new flooring and refrigeration, along with an enhanced in-store bakery, a focus on fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas, award winning wines and, essentials.
Customers will also get nearly a day longer to do their shopping every week as the doors are now open two hours extra on Monday to Saturday and 11 hours more on a Sunday.
Mossley Police Community Support Officers helped to officially re-launch the store on Tuesday, April 25 while samples, offers and promotions were available in the store on Friday, April 28.
The new-look store also brings a funding boost for local good causes through its new membership scheme. Members receive a five percent reward on purchases of own-branded products and services, with a further one per cent going directly to local causes.
Community groups benefitting over the last six months have been Emmaus Mossley, who received £2,219, Mossley Juniors Football Club, who got £2,148 and the Rotary Club of Dukinfield and Stalybridge, who received £2002.
UK-wide, over 4,000 good causes have shared more than £9million from the Co-op this month.
Angela Williams, Mossley Store Manager, said: “The store has a fantastic new-look.
“We are thrilled to have made such a significant investment in Mossley. We would like to thank our customers for their support during our refurbishment.
“The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum and our ambition is to establish the store as a local hub, a real asset for the community.
“We want shoppers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op.
“We are also giving back to the community, and shoppers can make a difference simply by swiping their membership card when they shop with us, raising much needed funding for good causes locally who contribute to improving local life.”
There are offers and promotions in and around the new-look store to mark its re-launch.
And students in Mossley holding an NUS extra card receive a 10 per cent discount off their groceries.
