Central England Co-op has announced plans to open more than 10 new food stores and revamp 10 existing sites as part of a multi-million pound investment plan.

In the year ahead, the society is expected to open new sites in 16 counties across the UK.

New stores are currently planned for Birmingham, Peterborough, Yorkshire, Derby, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Suffolk, and Nottingham. A further 10 food stores, across a wide range of towns and cities, will also be given a major makeover.

Central England Co-op chief executive Martyn Cheatle said: “We are really proud of the success of our food business, especially with our continued good performance in what is a highly competitive and increasingly uncertain trading environment.

“We want to continue with that success and this is why we are committed to an ambitious growth and investment strategy during the next 12 months.”

The new and revamped sites will feature upgraded fixtures and fittings including the latest energy-efficient refrigeration technologies and LED lighting.

The opening of all new food stores will be recognised by a special golden ticket give-away, where 50 lucky shoppers will have the chance to win a range of prizes, including large TVs and hundreds of pounds in vouchers.

Last year, Central England Co-op opened eight new food stores and relaunched more than 20 convenience stores. The 2017 development programme resulted in an invesment of more than £15m.
