New grocery store creates 20 jobs in Leighton Buzzard

Twenty jobs have been created in Leighton Buzzard with the opening of a new Your Co-op Food store.

The store located at Chamberlains Local Centre, Underwood Croft, Kemsley Drive, offers essential groceries, fruit and vegetables and fresh meat to a range of wines, spirits and chilled beers.

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

The store has solar panels installed on its roof, with the energy generated from these helping to meet the store’s electricity demand in a more sustainable way.

Your co-operative is part of The Midcounties Co-operative, which is one of the largest independent co-operatives in the UK and is wholly member owned. Customers of the new store will have the opportunity to become a member of the Company, which will give them access to exclusive offers as well as special offers from across the Your Co-op group of companies.

Members also have a say in how the Society is run, including the work it does to support local communities in partnership with local volunteers and community groups. Members can access it all in the palm of their hand with the Your Co-op Membership app.

The new store was built with an investment of over £500,000. The Company has invested over £3.5 million in opening seven new stores in 2021 and has committed to a further £5 million and ten new store openings planned for this year.
