Store’s support for school with £500 donation

Pupils from St Mary’s Primary School in Gosport have officially reopened The Southern Co-operative store in Forton Road, Gosport, which had been closed for a refit.

£500 was donated to the school by The Southern Co-operative to celebrate the opening of the store, which has refurbished to improve the store layout and range of produce.


Store Manager Ann McGowan said: “We’ve had some really positive feedback from customers enthusing about the greater range of produce and how good the store looks, making it a pleasure to shop here, which is really nice to hear. We’ve been really busy since reopening last week and have been pleased to welcome many new shoppers.” The store, which is at 268 Forton Road, is open seven days a week from 7am – 11pm.
