Sawtry food store receives £67k makeover to give boost to community

A community food store in Cambridgeshire 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 £67,000.

The Central England Co-op in Glatton Road, Sawtry has received a raft of updates to give it a fresher, lighter feel and to include a number of new ranges and features to boost its offering to the local community.

This follows the store’s colleagues working around the clock to ensure vulnerable people across the community have continued to have access to vital food and essentials through the Coronavirus pandemic.

The community food store has been undergoing a makeover in recent weeks with changes including:

· An updated product range to better reflect customers’ requirements including extended chilled range

· New internal signage and decoration

· Refreshed kiosk including new hybrid tobacco unit with backlighting

Store Manager Pete MacColl said: “The feedback we have had from colleagues and customers has been great so far and the changes have really refreshed the store and given everyone a boost.

“We are the main food store for the community so we are so delighted to be able to give them a more modern, better flowing store and I would like to thank our customers for their patience and hope they agree with us it has been worth the wait.”

The Glatton Road Food Store is open every day Monday to Saturday 7am-10pm and 10am-4pm on Sunday.

The store has a wide range of products from everyday necessities to something a little more special and also offers a cash machine, Collect Plus/Paypoint, Lottery, an instore bakery and a customer car park.
