A community food store in Birmingham where colleagues have been going above and beyond to support locals during these uncertain times has been given a fresh new look following an investment of £70k.
The Central England Co-op in Marsh Lane, Erdington has received a raft of updates to give it a fresher, lighter feel and to include a number of new ranges and features to boost its offering to the local community.
This follows the store’s colleagues working around the clock to ensure vulnerable people across the community have continued to have access to vital food and essentials through the Coronavirus pandemic.
The community food store has been undergoing a makeover in recent weeks with changes including:
. An updated product range to better reflect customers’ requirements including an improved food-to-go section
. New features such as a brand-new Costa Coffee machine
. New internal signage and decoration
Store Manager Dan Goodby said, “It has been really exciting for all of us here to have had this investment. It has been a big boost for the team but also for the community as well and we have already had some lovely feedback from our customers which is so nice to hear.
“I would like to thank everyone for their patience while the work has been carried out and hope they agree with us that it has definitely been worth the wait.”
The Marsh Lane Food Store is open every day Monday to Sunday 7am-9pm.
The store has a wide range of products from everyday necessities to something a little more special and also offers a cash machine, Collect Plus/Paypoint, Lottery, an instore bakery and customer car park.
