The doors have just opened to a brand new eco-friendly Midcounties Co-operative Food store in Upper Rissington, in the Cotswolds, following a £350k investment.
The new Food store has joined three other shops and a gym on Parade Square after relocating from Sopwith Road, making it a more convenient location for local residents to do all their shopping in one place.
The 3,000 sq ft store has welcomed seven new employees and features a modern new look with eco-friendly features, including LED lighting and energy-efficient refrigerators to reduce emissions.
A hot food counter offers customers more food-to-go options, and the store also supports local suppliers with a ‘Best of Our Counties’ range, which showcases 120 food and drink products from 12 Gloucestershire producers.
David Zasada, the store manager, said, 'We’re pleased to be working with local suppliers with the new ‘Best of Our Counties range and reducing our carbon footprint with the store’s new eco-friendly features.”
