Co-op to use new pop-up shops during store refurbishments
The Co-op has acquired some new walk-in pop-up stores that can be used while it carries out major store refurbishments.
Working with modular retail specialist Rapid Retail, the food retailer will be taking delivery of a number 230 square foot pop-up units which can hold at least six hundred product lines.
The Co-op uses pop-up shops to help it maintain services in areas where stores are closed for investment. The temporary stores have also been used in flood affected communities, including Hebden Bridge which was hit by adverse weather on Boxing Day 2015.
Barry Kent, project support co-ordinator at the, Co-op, said: “The Co-op is committed to aligning itself to the needs of its members and customers, getting closer to what they want and need. Capital expenditure and investment is ensuring Co-op is well positioned for future growth, which includes a major rolling programme of refurbishments. And the new pop-up stores will allow us to better serve our Members and customers, while they await the opening of their new-look Co-op store.”
The walk-in merchandising units, which will typically remain open for between one and four weeks, are fully branded and fitted out in line with the Co-op’s look and feel.
