New £600k London Co-op in Ealing opens tomorrow

Co-op is launching a new London food store in Ealing tomorrow, following a near £600k investment.

The store – located in South Ealing Road – has created six new jobs to take the number employed at this store to 25, and runs on 100% renewable electricity.

Opening between 7am-11pm, the convenience store will include a free ATM, enhanced bakery, coffee and a focus on fresh, heathy produce, award winning wines, ready meals and pizzas, free-from and vegan products, Fairtrade, food-to-go and, everyday essentials.

Contactless card payment limits are increased to £45, making it easier, quicker and safer to shop. The retailer’s Food Share scheme works to minimise food waste and make a difference locally, working with local not-for-profit organisations to share food with those in need in the community.

While the Co-op’s Community Shopping Card makes it easier for those self-isolating or who have been instructed to stay at home to shop and pay for their essentials - cards can be purchased or topped-up by calling 0800 029 4592, enabling friends, families or volunteers to shop on their behalf in store.

Muhammad Rahman, Co-op Area Manager, said, “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to make such a significant investment in the store, it has a great look and feel – and we are looking forward to serving the community.

'Co-op is committed to connecting communities and making a difference locally, and our aim is to operate at the heart of local life. That is why we also want customers to know that they can become a Member of their Co-op, and they can make a difference locally every time they swipe their Membership card when buying own branded products.”
