Buxton’s branch of the Co-operative food store has reopened after a £235,000 makeover.

The new-look store, on Scarsdale Place, relaunched on August 28 with a focus on fresh, healthy foods, and essentials.

The major makeover and fresh new format includes new flooring and new refrigeration to enhance its range of chilled and frozen produce including an extended range of dairy, meat and cheeses.

Two new positions are being created at the new-look store.

Members of the community interested in joining the food store team are advised to call in to enquire about opportunities available.

The store will also launch its Community Pioneer role, a member of the food store team who will also work to foster involvement in community activities, from local fundraising initiatives to helping to understand and develop solutions to meet community needs.

Christian Stolz is manager of the Co-operative food store.

He said: “We are delighted to be making such a significant investment in our store.

“It will have a fantastic new look and, it is an exciting time for the whole team.

“I am confident that our new-look store will be a real asset to the community - enabling shoppers to pick up delicious food conveniently and, as a community retailer and a co-operative, it will play its part in local life too.”

The Co-operative is committed to transforming and growing its convenience business.

It has announced a £125M investment in lowering the price of everyday essentials, including pruning the price of over 100 lines of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Christian added: “The Co-operative Food is committed to transforming and growing its convenience business, investing to enhance the in-store experience for our customers, while lowering the price of everyday essentials.”

There will be offers and promotions in and around the store to mark its re-launch.
