A RETAILER has unveiled a new-look food store and post office in Aston following a £500,000 programme of works.

The Co-op store in Central Drive re-opens today (Thursday, September 12).

It runs on 100 per cent renewable electricity and opens between 6am to 10pm daily.

Craig Emery, Co-op area manager, said: “We are delighted to have invested such a significant amount into our Aston store – the store has a great new-look and range. "Our aim is for the store to operate at the heart of local life and make a difference in the community – it is all about delivering what our Members and customers want, need and care about, conveniently.

"We also want customers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op, and that the Co-op gives back to its Members and the community.

"Our members help us to make a difference locally, with money raised for local causes when shoppers swipe their Membership card when they shop with us.

"The investment in Aston is a great way to mark the Co-op’s 175th anniversary year.”
