Your new Bassett Green Road store, Southampton

June 26, 2014 by The Co-operative Food

Declaring a community’s new food store open is child’s play for Southampton nursery children as they officially launch The Co-operative’s state-of-the-art store on Bassett Green Road today (Thursday, 26 June).

Fifteen children from the Hardmoor Early Years Centre joined forces with Manager, Kevin O’Shea, and the store team to cut the ribbon and welcome the community into their new-look store.

There are customer offers and activities in and around the store to celebrate the opening and, Kevin O’Shea, Store Manager, said: “The team is very excited about welcoming customers into the new store, I’m confident that it will provide the community with everything they need to pick up delicious food conveniently and create inspirational and tasty meals.”

Following an investment of over £800,000, the new, larger, Co-operative food store – which has created six new jobs – will focus on meal ideas, healthy, fresh foods and essentials. It is designed to make it easy and enjoyable for shoppers to pick up all the ingredients necessary to produce fantastic food, with ideas and tips on every aisle.

The Co-operative has also launched its commitment to “Fair and Square Pricing”, lowering prices on hundreds of everyday essential items such as bread, milk and bacon.

Kevin O’Shea continued: “I am delighted that children from the local nursery were able to join us to share in our special day. The Co-operative is a community retailer and we are committed to playing a real role in local life. As a co-operative, our staff and members play an active role in the areas in which we trade, and the new store will embrace the area’s community spirit.  Customers will be able to find out what is going on locally, and learn more about how The Co-operative’s Community Fund can benefit local groups.”
