Co-op is serving up an improved food store in Truro today following a major investment and refurb.

The Truro store was the beneficiary of a £941,000 investment to refurbish and overhaul the store in order to better meet the needs of the community.

Located on Boscawn Street, the transformed store will be open from 7am-10pm Monday-Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sunday and has increased its range and choice of fresh, healthy produce, ready meals and pizzas, award-winning wines, free-from and vegan products, Fairtrade, hot food, baked goods, food-to-go and everyday essentials.

Local members and customers are also able get their shopping delivered straight to their door through Co-op’s website.

Chris Arnold, Co-op Area Manager, said: "We are extremely proud to be relaunching our Truro store with a fresh new-look and an increased offer.
