First look at the new Co-op in Formby which opens this Thursday on Queens Road

The Co-op in Formby is set to open this Thursday 17th November at 7am. There will be lots of fun and free giveaways for everyone. Face painting and a visit by Chase from Paw Patrol between 3pm and 4pm and lots more going on so definitely worth a visit.

The new store looks amazing, clean and bright and will be a very welcome addition to shoreside for the residents.

The official opening ceremony and 'cutting of the ribbon' will be at 10am and will be done by Cllr Denise Dutton, the leader of the Conservative party for Harington ward.

An exciting day for everyone as residents have been without a convenience store in this location for a very long time.

The shelves are bursting with so many items and a huge selection of wines and spirits including an inhouse bakery

Co-op is serving-up its newest food store in Formby this Thursday with a near £600,000 investment which has created 20 new jobs.

The new store – which is located on Queens Road will open between 7am-10pm and include an in-store bakery and a focus on fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas and essentials.

The new store will also bring a funding boost to local community groups through the Co-op’s new Membership scheme. Co-op members receive a 5% reward on purchases of Co-op own-branded products and services, with a further 1% going to local causes and groups to make a difference in the community.

The Co-op will also appoint a Community Pioneer, a member of the food store team working to foster involvement in community activities, from local fundraising to working with charities, schools and voluntary organisations to contribute to local life.

Helen Horsley, Store Manager, said: “We are delighted to be making such a significant investment in Formby, to be opening the Co-op’s newest food store is an exciting time for the whole team - our aim is to establish the store as a local hub and we are looking forward to serving the community."

“The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum – delivering a compelling, convenient and co-operative experience for our members and customers. Our return to the ‘clover leaf’ design logo – first used in the 1960’s - links to a time when people really understood how they could be co-owners and members of their Co-op, and how a strong Co-op could help to create strong communities. And, what better way than to give back to communities as a reward for shopping with us. Our members have an opportunity to make a difference locally simply by using their Co-op card when they shop with us and provide much needed funding for organisations who contribute to improving local life.”

There will be offers and promotions in and around the new store to mark its launch. And, students in Formby who hold a NUS extra card receive a 10% discount off their groceries in the store.

The Co-op won four major awards in the 2016 Retail Industry Awards, including Convenience Retailer of the Year.

Earlier this year the Co-op was described as the fastest growing non-discounter food store according to retail industry data released by Kantar Worldpanel.

Co-op members are urged to look out for their new-look membership card which are being issued over the coming weeks.Members can choose which of the good causes they wish to support, and money will be raised over a six month period – for further information visit
