A recycle unit is also available to enable the community to return its ‘soft plastics’ - including: crisp packets, bread bags, lids from ready meals and yogurt pots, biscuit wrappers and, pet food pouches.

A funding boost is also provided locally through Co-op’s Membership programme. Membership of the Co-op unlocks additional value through in-store offers, and sees Members rewarded with 2p in every pound they spend on Co-op branded products which is added to their own personal Membership account balance. The Co-op also donates the same amount to local causes and community organisations.

Marcus Greaves, Manager of the new store which will operate as a Co-op franchise, said: “We have had a great response, and are delighted to have had the opportunity to create and launch a new Co-op store to serve the community which also brings Post Office services back to the village. Our aim is to operate at the heart of local life, and we are enjoying welcoming the community into their new Co-op. We have worked to develop the range, choice, products and added services to create a really compelling offer to serve Combe Martin, conveniently.”

Students who are TOTUM cardholders – the new name for NUS extra – also receive a 10% discount at the Co-op.
