The Co-op has opened its newest food store, in Hemsby, near Great Yarmouth, following a £1.2m investment.
The new store – located in Kings Way, Hemsby – provides 24 full and part-time jobs, and will bring a funding boost for local good causes through its Membership scheme – Members receive a 5% reward on the purchase of own-branded products and services, with a further 1% benefitting local good causes.
The store includes an in-store bakery alongside its focus on fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas, award winning wines and essentials.
Samantha Winter, Area Manager, said, “We are delighted to have undertaken such a significant investment in Hemsby, and proud to be part of the community. The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum, and our ambition is to ensure the store is a local hub and an asset for the community.
“We also want shoppers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op. And, that we are also giving back to the community. Our members make a difference locally, simply by swiping their membership card when they shop with us they are raising much needed funding for organisations in their area who contribute to improving local life.”
