Co-op opens first franchise store at a service station
Co-op has launched its first franchise store at a service station with the opening of Co-op Cornwall Services.
Spanning 2,000 square feet, the shop is situated off the Victoria Interchange junction off the A30 and will be open between 7am and 10pm seven days a week. Co-op said it has been specifically designed to serve commuters and tourists who pass through the area.
The store is the retailer’s 15th franchise shop which also include stores run by independent retailers, university campuses, Nisa partners, catering business Gather & Gather and Costcutter company owned stores.
Martin Rogers, head of new channels at Co-op, said: “We’re always looking for ways to reach new customers and members, and our Cornwall Services store is a great example of how our franchise model can flex to work in a number of different locations to meet differing customer missions. The Cornwall Services’ Co-op is a fantastic looking store in a cutting-edge service station in the heart of the county and will add a real point of difference for commuters, giving them access to award-winning and quality food on the go.”
