Axminster supermarket gets �250,000 facelift

Pupils open upgraded Co-op store

AXMINSTER Co-op has unveiled a smart new look for its West Street supermarket following a �250,000 refurbishment.

Youngsters from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School and Axminster Community Primary School performed the ribbon cutting ceremony and were presented with donations of �100 for each school’s funds to mark the occasion.

The store has been transformed with contemporary d�cor, new fixtures plus a more shopper-friendly layout.

The emphasis is on chilled and fresh foods with an increase in the range.

There is also more in-store baked breads and pastries while popular services including Lottery and Paypoint are retained.

As part of The Co-operative’s policy to reduce the use of plastic bags, customers will be encouraged to use a greener alternative such as The Co-operative Fairtrade cotton Bag for Life, which costs 97p or the plastic Bag for Life, priced at 10p, which the store will replace for free and then recycle.
