Central England Co-operative has invested over £13.4 million and created dozens of jobs as part of ongoing efforts to improve the experience of customers during 2018.

Throughout the year the Society has opened 10 new Food Stores and six new Funeral Homes as well as relaunching 22 funeral sites and 30 convenience stores.

The major development programme has seen individual areas such as Derbyshire receive over £4 million, Leciestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottingham and the West Midlands receive over £1 million each and £700,000 spent in Yorkshire.

Co-operative Store Manager Peter Sayers said: “All of us here at Central England Co-operative Food Stores across our trading area are proud to be part of such great communities and are looking forward to welcoming all customers, old and new, to come and enjoy our new and revamped Food Stores.”

The work throughout the year has been part of a food store and funeral home development programme, with further investment planned during 2019.
