A petrol station in a Wrexham village is set to close this month ahead of more than two million pounds of refurbishment works taking place.
The Co-op petrol filling station in Coedpoeth is set to embark on an 18 week programme of works to overhaul and replace the site’s infrastructure and extend the store.
The site will close during the afternoon on Saturday 27th July to undergo a near £2.5M investment – which once complete will see replacement tanks, pumps, forecourt and canopy, along with an extended food store and enhanced range.
Located in High Street, Coedpoeth, the new store will be around 3,000 sq.ft. and run on 100% renewable electricity. It is expected to re-open towards the end of November.
The new food store will include increased customer car parking, coffee and an in-store bakery, alongside its focus on fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas, food-to-go, meal ideas, award-winning wines and essentials. The filling station will provide unleaded and super unleaded petrol and, diesel and super diesel fuels.
It also brings a funding boost though the Co-op’s Membership scheme, where Members receive a 5% reward when they purchase own brand products and services, with the Co-op giving a further 1% to local causes. The Co-op also offers a 10% discount off groceries to students holding the NUS extra (TOTUM) card to support them during their studies.
Eddie Jenkinson, National Fuels Manager, Co-op, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to make further significant investment in North Wales – overhauling the petrol filling station and enhancing the food store in Coedpoeth in order to better serve the needs of the local community. We are confident that the re-development will benefit both the community and visitors to the area – and, it’s a great way to mark the 175th anniversary year of the Co-op!”
Michael Gallagher, Co-op area manager, said: “It is our aim to establish the store at the heart of local life and contribute to the community – the store will have a great new-look and range, it’s all about getting closer to our members and customers, providing what they want, need and care about, conveniently.
“We would like to thank our members and customers for their patience and understanding during the closure, it is a major investment in the infrastructure which will safeguard local jobs and enhance our offer locally to better serve our community.
“We also want customers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op, and that the Co-op gives back to its Members and the community – our members help us to make a difference locally, raising money for local causes simply by swiping their Membership card when they shop with us.“
