Central England Co-operative reveals opening date for its new Nottingham Food Store

Central England Co-operative can today reveal the launch date of its brand new Food Store in Nottingham.

The Society will officially open its new store in Westdale Lane, Carlton, at 9am on Friday, 15 February, with a special ribbon cutting ceremony involving local schoolchildren and volunteers from charities also set to help mark the occasion.

The opening of the store will see the launch of a special promotion called ‘Secret 6’ where customers will be able to claim a free prize at the new store every week for six weeks – just by signing up at www.centralengland.coop/stores/information/westdale-lane-food

Items from everyday essentials to sweet treats will then be available to claim each week when customers spend £5 or more in store.

Westdale Lane Central England Co-operative Store Manager Chris Woulds said: “This is a very exciting time for everyone in the team and preparations for the big day are well under way.

“Please come and join us at 9am on Friday, 15 February, see us cut the ribbon and take a look around our brand new store.

“There will be a great buzz on opening day and to celebrate the Food Store launch we will have plenty of special opening offers, we will be talking to customers about membership and how we can support in the local community. We look forward to seeing you there.”

The new convenience store will offer shoppers an expansive range of products and will be fitted out with pioneering new energy efficient refrigeration technologies to minimise environmental impact, LED lighting and a lifesaving defibrillator.

The store will be open from 7am to 10pm, Monday to Sunday and will offer a wide range of products from everyday necessities to something a little more special.

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

It also offers Lottery, Paypoint, Collect Plus, foreign currency and a free car park.
