Co-op serves-up new store in Cardiff’s Capital Quarter

Co-op opened a new food store in Cardiff last Friday (October 4) following a £700,000 investment creating 15 jobs.

Located in the city’s Capital Quarter, the store runs on 100% renewable electricity, and is one of three to open in South Wales this week, with other new Co-op food stores opening at Commercial Road in Machen and West Cross in Swansea.

The shop provides a funding boost for local causes through its membership scheme, where members receive a 5% reward when they purchase own-brand products, and Co-op gives a further 1% to local causes. In addition, Co-op offers a 10% discount off groceries to TOTUM cardholders (the new name for the NUS extra card) to support students during their studies.

The store opens between 7am-10pm daily and includes a bakery and Costa Coffee, alongside a focus on fresh, healthy foods, food-to-go, wine, hot food and essentials.

Co-op area manager Giles Jenkins said: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to make further significant investment in South Wales. Our aim is for stores to operate at the heart of local life – a community hub. The Co-op is committed to making a difference and creating value in its communities. We want the community to know that they can also become a co-owner of their Co-op, and that as a member they will raise money for local causes every time they swipe their membership card when buying own-brand products.”
