A new Co-op supermarket is to open in Hornchurch next month.

The shop will be in Station Parade and is due to open on September 14. It will follow the launches of Co-ops in Chelmsford and Walthamstow this summer.

The shop will deliver a funding boost for local community groups through the Co-op’s new membership scheme. Members receive a 5 per cent reward on purchases of Co-op own-branded products and services, with a further 1pc going to local causes to make a difference in the community.

Peter Batt, divisional managing director for the Co-op, said: “We are delighted to have made such a significant investment in the Greater London and Essex area by opening three brand new stores. The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum and our ambition is to establish all of our stores as a local hub, a real asset for the community.

“The return to our clover leaf design logo – first used in the 1960s - aims to re-establish the Co-op as a centre for the community, and we want shoppers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op. Our members have an opportunity to make a difference locally and by using their membership card when they shop with us they will raise much needed funding for organisations who contribute to improving local life.”

There will be offers and promotions in and around the new store to mark its launch. And students who hold an NUS card will receive a 10pc discount off their groceries.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
