New look at the Co-op

A RIPLEY foodstore has been given a makeover.

The Derby Road branch of the Co-op has undergone a series of improvements including redecoration, rebranding and minor layout alterations.

There is also a new fresh food and produce section and an improved in-store bakery.

Store manager George O’Brien said: “The store is looking great. We’ve had some very positive comments from customers both old and new who particularly like the store’s bright and airy feel which has improved the whole shopping experience.

“I’d personally like to thank everyone for their patience during the improvement work and thank customers for their continued support and loyalty.”

Post Office manager Lynette Lawrie said: “It’s been quite exciting really to see all the work taking place.”
