The Co-op has opened its newest food store in Chester following a £740,000 investment creating 20 jobs.
And The Chronicle has teamed up with the Co-op to offer readers the chance to win one of five prizes of £100 vouchers.
The store, in Christleton Road, opened on June 1 and brings a funding boost to local community groups through its membership scheme.
Members receive a 5% reward on purchases of own-branded products, with a further 1% benefitting local good causes - in April, more than £9m was shared among more than 4,000 causes UK-wide.
Between June 1-14, anyone joining as a new member of the Co-op at the Christleton Road store will be entered into a free prize draw, with a chance to win one of five prizes of £500, plus a further £100 to donate to one of three causes supported by the store.
Good causes benefitting at Christleton Road’s Co-op are: Mollington, Backford and District Village Hall; Hoole Community Development Trust (Hoole Community Centre/Community Café); and, Friends of Chester and District Samaritans.
The Co-op – described as the fastest growing convenience retailer – offers an in-store bakery and focus on fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas and essentials.
Mike Williams, store manager for the new Co-op in Chester, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming the community into their new store - we have received great feedback. It’s an exciting time for the whole team to be involved in the launch of Co-op’s newest store. Our ambition is to establish the store as a local hub, a real asset for the community.
“We are also giving back to the community - our members make a difference locally simply by swiping their membership card when they shop with us, raising much needed funding for organisations who contribute to improving local life.”
