The Co-op has announced plans to open a new store on Cliff Road, Falmouth following a £550,000 investment that will create up to 20 local jobs.

In late April, it was announced that the Co-op would be taking over the retail unit below The Liner, as the company submitted a licensing application for the sale of alcohol.

The store will run on 100% renewable electricity and includes a bakery, Costa Coffee Express, and food-to-go.

There will also be an extensive chilled, fresh and frozen range, meal ideas, award-winning wines, ready meals and pizzas, free-from, vegan and plant-based products, fairtrade, and, everyday essentials.

The retailer is also adding self-service tills for further ease, speed, and convenience, also offering John Lewis Click & Collect.

A funding boost is provided locally through the Co-op's Membership scheme.

Membership of the Co-op unlocks additional value through in-store offers, and sees Members rewarded with 2p in every pound they spend on Co-op branded products which is added to their own personal Membership account balance. The Co-op also donates the same amount to local causes.

Students who are TOTUM cardholders – the new name for NUS extra – receive a 10% discount at the Co-op.

Contactless card payment limits are increased to £45, making it easier, quicker, and safer to shop.

Martin Trethewey, Co-op Area Manager, commented:

"We are delighted to have an opportunity to launch a brand new store, and we are working to develop the range, choice, products, and services locally that will create a really compelling offer to serve the community.

"Co-op is committed to connecting communities and making a difference locally, and our aim is to operate at the heart of local life. We also want customers to know that they can become a Member of the Co-op.

"In addition to unlocking additional value and personalised offers for themselves, our Members help to make a difference to local causes. Co-op donates 2p in every pound to community causes every time a Member swipes their Membership card when buying own-branded products – so by shopping at the Co-op our Members are also helping to make good things happen in the community."

A spokesperson for the Co-op confirmed the new store is expected to open later this summer.
