Poole store opening hits the right note!


Young musicians from Wessex Youth Music Centre serenaded customers at the opening of The Southern Co-operative’s new convenience food store in Poole.

19 jobs have been created with the opening of the new store at 25 Ringwood Road, Poole, and as Store Manager Craig Corkett confirmed, the store has been well received by customers: “We’ve had really positive response since opening and have been really, really busy. Our customers like the size of the store and the range of produce, as well as the parking facility here. ”. Shoppers at the store also have the opportunity to win £150 co-operative vouchers simply by giving their feedback about the new store by 6 August.


To celebrate the new store, which is open seven days a week from 7am-11pm, The Southern Co-operative donated £250 to Wessex Youth Music Centre and a further £250 to the Alzheimer’s Society at Alderney Hospital.
