The Co-op has revealed plans to open a new food store in Liverpool city centre.
The store, which will create 15 new jobs, is set to open on Leece Street opposite St Luke’s Church next spring.
Part of the Unite Group’s St Luke’s View student development, the new Co-op will have an in-store bakery, locally sourced products and a focus on “fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas and essentials”.
Chris Moss, acquisitions manager for Co-op, says: “We’re looking forward to opening a new store in Liverpool.
“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to provide shoppers with our wide range of award-winning food, in a store designed to be easy to use for everyone.”
Students in the area with an NUS extra card will get a 10% discount off their groceries at the store.
Tony Hind, head of new store development, adds: “We’re committed to finding great locations for our new stores, we know people want to be able to buy high quality food near to where they live and work, in handy-sized shops that are open at convenient times.”
