The Co-op has served-up a new-look food store in Radcliffe-on-Trent following a £750,000 investment.

The store – located on Main Street – opened yesterday (Thursday, 16 May). It now opens between 6am – 11pm, seven days a week. It also brings a funding boost through the Co-op’s Membership scheme which sees Members receive a 5% reward on the purchase of own-brand products and services, with Co-op donating a further 1% to local causes.

Local causes currently benefiting from the scheme include: Radcliffe Methodist Youth Group; Radcliffe Olympic Football Club and the Radcliffe on Trent Infant and Nursery School.
