Central England Co-op has officially opened its flagship store in Lichfield, Staffordshire after a £3m investment.
Chief executive Debbie Robinson was on hand to cut the ribbon at Boley Park and reveal to customers and members a range of new features being debuted by the retailer for the first time in its business.
This includes a zero waste refill station that will enable shoppers to buy only what they need and cut down on food packaging and waste.
It will also include a range of safety features in the light of the coronavirus pandemic such as plastic screens, a one-way system and social distancing measures.
