The store’s relaunch also brings a new range, layout, and services

Co-op has revamped its Thornton-Cleveleys branch to feature a store within a store from value retailer Boyes.

Located in Blackpool, the 3,365 sq ft Boyes store will sell a variety of clothing, homeware, electrical appliances, stationery, DIY products, soft furnishings, pet products and seasonal ranges at “bargain prices”, according to Co-op.

“Boyes are extremely excited about being part of the Thornton-Cleveleys community, bringing our range of DIY, homewares and clothing to more people,” said Boyes regional manager Fiona Lawson.

“We’re delighted to be working with Co-op and to be joining them as part of their investment and transformation of this store. We look forward to opening and meeting new customers.”

It forms part of the store’s relaunch, bringing a new range, layout, and services to “better serve the community”.

The store includes the online delivery of groceries through Co-op’s online shop and parcel collection services with Amazon and DPD. There is also a cash machine to provide access to cash in the community.

This sits alongside a focus on fresh, healthy products; meal ideas; everyday essentials and ingredients; food to go; Fairtrade products; chilled beers and wines; ready meals, pizzas and free-from; vegan and plant-based products.

A new laundry service will also be available with a Revolution Laundromat located outside the store for washing and drying all types of laundry.

Co-op store manager Terry Mark said: “We have had a great response, and are delighted to have had the opportunity to carry out such a significant investment to transform the store – it has a great new look.

“We are also delighted to partner with Boyes who are launching their newest outlet inside. It is a fantastic addition to the store. We have worked to develop the range, choice and added services to create a compelling offer to serve our community and visitors to the area.”
