New £500,000 Your Co-Op food store opens in Twigworth Gloucester

A new Your Co-op Food store has opened in Twigworth near Gloucester, as part of a proposed development by Robert Hitchins Ltd.

The 4,000 square foot convenience store has created 20 local jobs and offers essential groceries ranging from fruits and vegetables and fresh meat to a range of wines, spirits and cold beers.

It also houses an in-store bakery, an ATM, National Lottery and PayPoint terminals, a Hermes ParcelShop and a range of refrigerated takeaways.

Your co-operative is part of The Midcounties Co-operative, one of the largest independent co-operatives in the UK, and is wholly owned by its members.

The new store was built with an investment of over £500,000 as part of Midcounties’ continued investment in food retail. The group has invested more than £3.5m in opening seven new stores in 2021 and has committed to a further £5m and ten new store openings planned for this year.

Sharon Williams, Store Managersaid: “We are delighted to open the doors of our brand new convenience store and look forward to meeting the local community.

“We really look forward to welcoming members and customers and I’m sure they will be impressed with the wide range of products and services we offer.”

Shop hours are 7am to 10pm daily.

The new store on the A38 in North Gloucester is at the entrance to the new Twigworth Green development presented by Robert Hitchins Ltd, which includes 725 new homes.

Karen Vaughan-Edwards, Asset Manager at Robert Hitchins Ltdsaid: “We are delighted to welcome the new Your Co-op store to the Twigworth Green development. We know the new store will be an important part of the local community and we wish the team every success.”

Three dwellings remain in the center and the Arc Retail commercial property companies market them for rent. They range from 1,000 square feet and can be merged to create a single unit of up to 3,000 square feet.
