A community food store in South Derbyshire where colleagues have been going above and beyond to support locals during these uncertain times has been given a fresh new look following an investment of over £103,000.
The Central England Co-op in Burton Road, Overseal has received a raft of updates to give it a fresher, lighter feel and to include several new ranges and features to boost its offering to the local community.
This follows the store’s colleagues working around the clock to ensure people in the community it has served through the Coronavirus pandemic have continued to have access to vital food and essentials.
The community food store has been undergoing a makeover in recent weeks with changes including:
· Extended refrigeration section including an extended chilled beers and wine range
· Improved food to go section with new features such as a brand-new Tango Ice Blast machine, Rollover hot dogs and Chicago Town pizzas to takeaway
· New internal signage and decoration
Store Manager Kim Grice said: “The whole team are really excited about the improvements to the store and have been eagerly awaiting it all being finished so we can showcase the transformation to our local community.
“The feedback to the changes so far has been really positive from our customers, and I would like to thank the community for their patience while the work has been completed but I hope they agree with us that it has been worth it.”
The Burton Road Food Store is open Monday-Saturday 7pm-9.30pm and Sunday 8am-9.30pm. The store has a wide range of products from everyday necessities to something a little more special and also offers a lifesaving defibrillator, cash machine, Lottery, Collect Plus/Paypoint, instore bakery and a customer car park.
