The new Cambridgeshire store has officially opened in Sutton, creating 15 new jobs and investing over £2M in the local community.

The new store is located on Ely Road and is 100 per cent powered by renewable energy. Some of the features of the new store include self-scan till points, a bicycle repair station, customer car park with electric car charging points, a full range of products, free hot and cold water refill station, phone charging area and indoor and outdoor seating areas.

A food bank collection point has also been installed to support the great work of Ely Food Bank as it continues to manage the increased demand caused by the Coronavirus outbreak.

Rebecca Mott, Store Manager, commented: ““All of us here at the new store are proud to be part of such a great community in Sutton so we are delighted to be able to support Ely Food Bank which is offering a lifeline to vulnerable residents and people struggling in these testing times. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank local residents for their patience. It has been long-awaited, but hopefully everyone will enjoy the store as much as we do.”

The Ely Road Co-operative food store is open from 7am to 10pm, Monday to Sunday and offers a wide range of products.
