THE Co-op in Culcheth has reopened after a £500,000 refurbishment.

Located on Common Lane, the convenience store welcomed customers back in on Thursday, February 13, after a £550k investment – with the Challenge Cup trophy on display to mark the occasion.

Manager Eleri Atherton said: "We are delighted to have had the opportunity to carry out such significant investment.

"The store has a great new look and feel, and we are receiving great feedback.

"To have had the Challenge Cup with us for our relaunch was very special for us and many of our customers.

"I am confident our improvements will enable us to better serve the needs of our local community.

"Our aim is to operate at the heart of local life, a community hub creating value locally.

"It’s all about providing what our members and customers want, need and care about conveniently.

"We are really looking forward to welcoming customers old and new back into the store."
