A HEREFORD petrol station is set to reopen this week after a £1.7 million overhaul.
The Holmer Road Co-op filling station and store, which has been closed since July, will be opening to customers on November 20 after a programme of works to overhaul the fuel infrastructure and build a new, larger, food store.
The investment in the 24-hour A49 site, which supports 25 local jobs, has seen new fuel tanks, pumps, canopy and forecourt layout, while the store’s retail space has almost trebled in size.
The new-look store now includes Amazon Lockers, customer car parking, Costa coffee express and an in-store bakery.
Craig Emery, Co-op Area Manager, said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to make such a significant investment in our Holmer Road store – we have undertaken an extensive programme of works to enhance the fuel and food offer.
“Co-op is committed to connecting communities and making a difference locally, and to operating at the heart of local life. That is why we also want customers to know that they can become a Member of the Co-op. In addition to unlocking additional value and personalised offers, our Members make a difference to local causes, with Co-op now donating 2% to community causes every time a Member swipes their Membership card when buying own branded products.”
