Employment boost as former pub becomes Co-op store
Central England Co-op has launched a store in Tickhill, South Yorkshire, creating 16 new jobs – its second new store to open in the county this year.
The Society officially opened its store off the A60 Westgate, Tickhill, in the former Millstone public house.
It offers shoppers a range of products and features such as self-service checkouts, a food-to-go section, a free-to-use cash machine and a customer toilet with baby changing facilities.
Store manager Liam Turner said: “It’s great to have finally opened our doors and to welcome our new customers and members to see our fantastic new store and see what we have on offer.
“All of us here are proud to be part of such a great community in Tickhill.
“It is also great to welcome Bassetlaw Food Bank down and help kick off our relationship with a donation to support the brilliant work they are doing supporting the community.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank local residents for their patience as work on the store has progressed. It’s been long-awaited, but hopefully everyone will enjoy the store as much as we do.”
