New-look £170,000 Highbridge supermarket set to open

A supermarket chain has invested £170,000 in converting Highbridge's Somerfield store into a new Co-Op branded store, which is set to open later this week.

The new-look store in Southwell Crescent will open its doors for the first time this Friday (13th August) with a greater product range and improved service, according to bosses.

"As well as a new look and more spacious layout, it will feature enhanced product ranges, with an emphasis on fresh foods," Highbridge store manager Rob Prowton told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

"We are proud to serve the local community and this investment in the store means we can now provide a much enhanced service."

"We will meet all the community’s daily food shopping needs and, in the best traditions of The Co-operative, make our contribution to community life."

The Highbridge store - which employs 25 staff - will offer product tastings and giveaways on launch day and over the weekend.

The conversion of the supermarket follows The Co-Operative Group’s £1.56 billion acquisition of the Somerfield supermarket chain last year. All Somerfield branches are being converted to Co-Operatives by 2011.
