Alrewas Co-op enjoys early Christmas present following £26,000 investment

Central England Co-op has upgraded its Alrewas store to give customers and members a boost just in time for Christmas.

The food store, which is based in Main Street, now has a vastly expanded range of products following the introduction of items from around the world and a brand new health and wellbeing selection.

The store has also had a Costa Coffee machine installed allowing customers to buy a range of hot drinks during the winter months.

Store Manager Suzanne Young said: “All of us here at the Alrewas store are proud to be part of such a great community and are delighted to welcome everyone to come and enjoy our upgraded store filled with exciting new products.”

The Alrewas Co-operative Food Store is open from 7am to 10pm, Monday to Sunday. It offers a wide range of products from everyday necessities to something a little more special.

The store offer includes fresh and local fruit and vegetables, an in-store bakery offering breads and pastries, chilled beers and wines, fresh and frozen product, Irresistible product ranges, and a great selection of food to go.

The upgrade has seen over £26,000 invested in the Alrewas food store.
