Central England Co-op partners with The Original Factory Shop in Derbyshire
Central England Co-op has seen The Original Factory Shop open a concession within its Ripley supermarket.
The move follows the closure of The Original Factory Shop’s store in the town earlier this year.
Spanning 2,260 square feet, the concession will offer a range of clothing, pet products, electricals and homewares, as well as a party shop service and reserve and collect.
Helen Bowler, the store manager for The Original Factory Shop, said: “We’ve got a fantastic new team and brand-new concession here at the Ripley Co-op. The fact that we have been able to recruit for up to seven new job positions within the local area adds to the buzz and helps us to better serve our local community with expert knowledge and advice.”
Central England Co-op Ripley store manager Nathan Burrows added: “We are proud to be at the heart of the local community here in Ripley so therefore we are delighted to welcome such a popular store as The Original Factory Shop to be part of what we are able to offer, as I know they have been much missed since leaving Ripley earlier this year.”
