It’s a summer of celebration for Swallownest’s Co-op as the store marks 36 years of being there for the community with a fresh new look.
To recognise the occasion and thank local members, customers and causes for their continued support and involvement, the store team will be hosting a family fun weekend starting on August 14.
Through Co-op Membership and Co-op’s Local Community Fund, shoppers have raised an amazing £45,368 so far, and, over the weekend, current local causes will be running games and competitions and handing out free ice creams to help raise money for Co-op's charity partner, MIND.
Helen White, Swallownest Co-op’s manager, said: “It’s been a brilliant 36 years of serving and supporting the Swallownest community. We’re thrilled to be continuing our commitment to local members and customers with a fresh new look, community events and exclusive offers.
“I’d like to thank everyone for shopping with us and helping us make Swallownest a better place to live, work and play – I look forward to seeing old and new faces at our family fun weekend.”
The store’s Make A Wish campaign will also launch this week, and to make a wish come true in the Swallownest community, shoppers just need to visit the store and scan one of the posters to complete an application or suggest a recipient for up to £5k on the store’s wish board.
