A Co-op store in Weston-super-Mare has received a £450,000 facelift and is now focusing on giving back to its community.
The Co-op in Severn Road, near Clarence Park, has been re-branded to go from The Co-operative to Co-op.
Kym Withers, operations trainer for the store, said: “We have spent just under £450,000. We have gone back to Co-op and have re-launched our membership scheme.”
The scheme means people can get a card which will give them back five per cent of what they spend on Co-op’s own-brand products, while one per cent of the money goes to community products.
The store has chosen St Anne’s School and the Lighthouse Charity to support for six months and members will then get to nominate causes.

The store has also linked up with Weston Football Club, whose players attended its re-launch on September 28. The Co-op will provide healthy food to be given out at talks hosted by the club.
