Central England Co-op can today give a first look at the progress of its brand new community store opening in Lichfield next week.

The Society will officially open its new store at Fosseway Gate, part of the new Birmingham Road development in the city, on Friday, 6 May, with confirmed features including self-checkouts, a customer car park, free water refills and customer toilets.

It will be the Society’s third store in Lichfield, the city also being home to its headquarters based off Eastern Avenue.

These images showcase how both the outside and inside of the store have almost been completed and is ready for thousands of products to be stacked onto the shelves ahead of the official opening.

The store’s frontage is almost complete and special eco-friendly fridges and lighting have started to be installed to back up the retailer’s eco-friendly ethos, while the kiosk area is in place ready to welcome locals.

Fosseway Gate Central England Co-operative Store Manager Lindsay Kearney said: “The images show that our brand new store in Lichfield is almost ready to launch and we can’t wait to open the doors to the local community and build some wonderful relationships with new customers and members as the new development continues to progress in the coming months.”

The Fosseway Gate Co-operative food store will be open from 7am to 10pm, Monday to Sunday.

The store will offer a wide range of products from everyday necessities to something a little more special.

This includes fresh fruit and vegetables, an in-store bakery offering breads and pastries, chilled beers and wines, fresh and frozen product, Irresistible and Fairtrade product ranges, as well as a great selection of food to go, including hot food.

It will also offer Lottery, Paypoint and Collect Plus, as well as a free cash machine and lifesaving defibrillator for the local community.
