New-look Highbridge store opens after £170,000 revamp

There were celebrations at a supermarket in Highbridge on Friday (August 13th) when it re-opened following a £170,000 revamp.

The town's Somerfield store in Southwell Crescent has been given a makeover as it becomes a Co-Op.

Rob Prowton, store manager, is pictured above cutting a ribbon at Friday morning's opening ceremony in the new-look store.

"As well as a new look and more spacious layout, the store features 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 revamp of the store - which employs 25 staff - 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.
