WILLITON’S Co-op is currently closed as the supermarket branch undertakes a £700,000 revamp.

The Fore Street store is set to re-open on February 2 and the owners say the new look store ‘will offer a wide range of fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas, award winning wines and essentials along with an in-store bakery’.

The closure follows a similar overhaul of the Co-op in Watchet which recently re-opened after being closed for a month.

Darren Webber, store manager, said: “We are delighted to be undertaking such a significant investment in Williton and we’re confident that the improvements will help us to better serve the community. It’s an exciting time for the whole team.”

Nick Crocker, area manager, added: “The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum. Our ambition is to ensure the store is a local hub, a real asset for the community.

“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 in their area who contribute to improving local life.”
