Co-op to serve up new MediaCity store
Co-op is to launch a new convenience store at Salford’s MediaCity this month.
Due to open on 26 May, the 5,300 square foot shop is to be powered by 100% renewable electricity.
The opening will mean the Co-op will have seven stores in Salford including a ‘store’ in Coronation Street’s Weatherfield, which is part of a partnership with ITV.
In addition to selling groceries, the shop will offer customers a range of added services including John Lewis parcel collection and return, Amazon and DPD parcel collection, Deliveroo, a free ATM, and click and collect for groceries bought through Co-op’s online shop. In addition, the store will feature Co-op’s own-brand Ever Ground coffee dispenser, a bakery, hot food, Yo Sushi and freshly baked pizza.
The MediaCity Co-op will also offer a recycle unit for ‘soft plastics’ such as crisp packets, bread bags, lids from ready meals and yogurt pots, biscuit wrappers, and pet food pouches. There will also be a free water refill station where shoppers can fill up their own water bottles.
Simon Williams, Co-op’s MediaCity store manager, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to serve MediaCity and welcome the community into their Co-op. Our aim is to operate at the heart of local life, whether it is food-to-go, something for the evening meal, parcel collections or online delivery and click and collect we have been working to develop the range, choice, products and added services which will create a really compelling offer to serve MediaCity, conveniently.”
