The Co-op has this week unveiled its new-look petrol filling station and food store in Old Colwyn which has re-opened following a £1M overhaul.

The store brings a funding boost locally though the Co-op’s Membership scheme. Members receive a 5% reward when they purchase own-brand products and services, with the Co-op giving a further 1% to local causes.

In addition, Co-op offers a 10% discount off groceries to TOTUM cardholders (the new name for the NUS extra card) to support students 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. Our aim is for the petrol station and food store to operate at the heart of local life - a community hub – providing food and fuel needs conveniently for the community and visitors to the region. The Co-op is committed to making a difference and creating value in its communities, and the investment is a great way for the Co-op to mark its 175th anniversary year!”
