Food store opens its doors again

A PONTELAND food store is undergoing a facelift following a £220,000 investment.

The Co-operative is upgrading its shop in Broadway, Darras Hall, with a new kiosk, all new eco-refrigeration, new lighting and repairs to the ceiling.

The meat and chilled ranges will be extended and there will be space for more promotions in store. Popular services such as Paypoint will remain.

Store Manager Judith Wright said: “We operate in the heart of the community and by doing so provide an ideal location for people to shop locally.

“It is important that we continue to meet people’s needs and provide a welcoming environment in which to shop.”

The work is set to be completed today. Once the store re-launches, opening hours will remain 7am to 10pm every day.
