A NEW 'Your Co-Op Food Store' has opened its doors in West Hagley on Worcester Road.

The store has created 17 jobs for the area and will offer essential grocery items, from fruit and vegetables and fresh meat to a range of chilled beers, wines and spirits.

Your Co-op is part of The Midcounties Co-operative and is fully owned by its members.

Customers at the new store will have the option of becoming a member of the society, giving them access to exclusive member-only deals as well as special offers from across the Your Co-op group of businesses.

Members also have a say in how the society is run, including the work it does to support local communities in partnership with local volunteers and community groups.

Dean Puplett, store manager, said: “We can’t wait to open the doors to our new convenience store and meet the local community.

“We’re really looking forward to welcoming members and customers and I’m sure they’ll be impressed with the wide range of products and services we have on offer.”

The new supermarket will also be home to an in-store bakery, hot food counter, Costa Express coffee machine, Paypoint and National Lottery terminals.

The stores’ opening hours will be 7am to 10pm every day throughout the week.
