The Co-op will provide customers in the area with a selection of fresh food and other groceries. Other stores under the chain have recently undergone rebranding which also included providing more hot food options, fresh Costa coffee, and a large new selection of exciting own brand products. Although it is not known whether or not the Pontcanna store will provide all of these, it's definitely a possibility. Co-op's rebrand had the focus of bringing the chain back to its roots of a true community based shopping experience, with their customers at the centre of everything they do. Unlike other grocery chains, Co-op attempts to provide the feeling of a locally owned small business. In a sense, a Co-op store does feel like this but offers the great deals and a better selection of stock, normally associated with larger supermarkets.
The full details of the new store are not yet available but there is some information available. Although many are aware that the store will be opening soon, there is still an air of mystery surrounding the opening of the new Co-op. So far, we know that the Poncanna Co-op will be set over 2000 square feet and has had over £1 million pounds invested into it. The construction appears to be on track and it is thought that the store will be open in time for Christmas 2018. This is great news for those hoping to bag some Christmas bargains.
The feeling regarding the new Co-op is fairly mixed between the Pontcanna locals. This is mainly due to the fact that the store will be located in the building of the former post office. Postal services are very important to local people but it is hoped that an alternative option will be put into place. Others seem fairly excited about the prospect of a new Co-op in the area.
