Children from Bangor Central Integrated Primary School helped to officially open the new Co-operative food store on Main Street, in Bangor, with store manager, Alan Ritchie recently.
The new 2,000 sq ft convenience store was a relocation of the community retailer’s store in the nearby Flagship Centre. It has been designed with families in mind, and will be stocked with everything that makes catering for weekly family meals simple and cost effective.
The store also has an extended bakery offer, a wide range of fresh produce, and extended opening hours (7am-10pm every day).
Alan Ritchie, Store Manager, said: “We are thrilled to open the doors of our new store on Main Street. As a community retailer it is appropriate we involve the community in our special events, and we were delighted that the neighbouring school were able to play a central role in the opening of our new store.
“The store team here are all really looking forward to welcoming customers to our new, family-focused store. In the current economic climate, we know it’s more important than ever for shoppers to be able to find great food, at great prices, close to home. By providing family-based offers in store, we hope to be able to help local people stick to their weekly family budget.”
The school received a £200 donation for their help on the day.
