Exclusive offer to celebrate opening of new Glascote Co-op

A striking new Tamworth Co-op convenience store recently opened in Glascote on the site of the former Anchor Inn. To celebrate we’re offering a whopping £4 off your bill when you spend £20 or more in one shopping trip.

Our new £1.5m Glascote Co-op

Simply present the voucher in the August 13 edition of the Tamworth Herald when you pay for your shopping. Only one coupon per customer is allowed. Please note we cannot accept photocopies (see full terms and conditions on the voucher). Vouchers need to be redeemed by August 22.

If you haven’t shopped at the new £1.5m Glascote Co-op yet, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the huge choice of quality food and drink on offer, from British meat and healthy vegetables to bread hot out of the oven.

There is also an extensive range of fresh fruit, dairy products, frozen food, ready-made meals, sandwiches, wines, beers (including a selection of real ales), as well as other essential household supplies and newspapers.

Beautifully situated next to the Coventry Canal, the store is handy for shoppers arriving by car or barge.

On the outside many of the original features of the historic pub have been retained, including the timber cladding and roof tiles.
Inside, the 3,000 sq. ft. store looks modern and bright, thanks to LED lighting and energy efficient, black refrigeration cabinets which keep produce at the perfect temperature.

Bob Read, head of the Tamworth Co-op’s food division, says the new facility not only offers value for money and convenience but now meets a growing preference for a different type of shopping experience.

“We’ve been seeing a distinct trend of late in the way people like to do their shopping. Increasingly, they are tending to
buy food for a couple of days at a time, rather than do a huge monthly shop,” he said.

“This is backed up by research just released by the Co-operative Food group which shows shoppers mirroring what was happening in the 1960s before the advent of giant supermarkets.

“There is a growing tendency for ‘grazing’ shopping, as we
call it. In addition to a large choice of food for most meal occasions, there is a take-away section providing hot coffee, croissants, pies, sausage rolls and various other tasty snacks.”

Hundreds of shoppers have already flocked to our new store which replaces the smaller site we used to operate in Glascote. We’ve been delighted with the warm comments we have received.

Shoppers can enjoy a great range of fresh, healthy produce.
