A new Co-op will open in Kingston this week.

The new store in Lower Marsh Lane, will be open between 7am to 11pm and create 20 full and part time jobs as a result.

With nearly £600,000 spent on bringing the shop to town, area manager Anuj Christi was excited to see it finally unveiled.

“The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum, and our ambition is to ensure the store is a local hub for people living in the area," she said.

“We also want shoppers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op.

"Our members make a difference locally and simply by swiping their membership card when they shop with us, they are raising much needed funding for organisations who contribute to improving local life.”
