Co-op has unveiled its latest Welsh store - in Prestatyn.

Children from Ysgol Penmorfa received a donation of £150 towards new school outdoor play equipment, and winners of a colouring competition will see their artwork displayed at the shop.

Located on Victoria Road, the store runs on 100% renewable electricity and brings a funding boost though the Co-op’s Membership scheme, where Members receive a 5% reward when they purchase own brand products and services, with the Co-op giving a further 1% to local causes.

The new food store, approximately 2,500 sq. ft in size and open between 6am-11pm, includes customer car parking, a Costa coffee dispenser and in-store bakery alongside its focus on fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas, sandwiches, award-winning wines and essentials.

Katie McFaul, Co-op store manager, said: “We have had a great response so far, and are delighted to have had the opportunity to make such a significant investment in Prestatyn.

"We are looking forward to serving the community – our ambition is to establish the store at the heart of local life. It’s a great way for us to mark the 175th anniversary year of the Co-op!”

Michael Gallagher, Co-op Area Manager, added: “The store will have a great look and range, it’s all about getting closer to our members and customers, providing what they want, need and care about, conveniently.

"We also want customers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op, and that the Co-op gives back to its Members and the community - our Members help us to make a difference locally, raising money for local causes simply by swiping their Membership card when they shop with us.“
