CO-OP TO SERVE UP LATEST STORE IN EDINBURGH WITH £700,000 INVESTMENT
The new store, located on St John’s Road, will be opened at 10.00am on 28 June 2019 by Corstorphine Youth and Community Association.
It will offer a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables, healthy foods, meal ideas, ready-to-go hot food, award-winning wines and essentials along with an in-store bakery, Costa Coffee machine, self-scan tills, paypoint and a car park.
The store also brings a funding boost locally through Co-op’s Membership scheme – members receive a 5% reward on the purchase of own-brand products and services, with Co-op donating a further 1% to causes.
Causes in the area currently benefitting include Corstorphine Dementia Project, Drylaw Neighbourhood Centre, and Corstorphine Youth and Community Association – with Co-op members able to choose which group they would like to support online.
Graeme Cranston, Area Manager for the Co-op, said: “The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum, and our ambition is to ensure the store is a local hub for people living in the area.
“We also want shoppers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op. Our members make a difference locally and simply by swiping their membership card when they shop with us, they are raising much needed funding for organisations who contribute to improving local life.”
