Published 8 Oct 2019 in Store Opening
The Midcounties Co-operative has unveiled its brand-new Your Coop Food convenience store at the Duchy Field estate in Bletchingdon following a £520,000 investment.
Colleagues from the new store were joined by pupils at the Bletchingdon Primary School, on Thursday 26th September to officially cut the ribbon to welcome shoppers through the doors and celebrate the opening of the store.
The modern store equipped with energy-saving features, including energy-efficient refrigerators, LED lighting and ventilation, will also sell compostable carrier bags, as part of The Midcounties Co-operative’s commitment to sustainability and reduction of single-use plastic in the environment.
The brand-new store offers local residents a wide range of grocery essentials for breakfast, lunch and dinner – including the popular COOK frozen ready meal range - along with a food-to-go offering. Customers can also buy National Lottery tickets and use the free ATM.

A little pick-me-up is available via an in-store Costa Coffee machine and shoppers can look forward to receiving expert guidance from manager and qualified wine expert Mike Seaton on matching the perfect bottle to every occasion.
Local residents will also benefit from the store’s daily extended opening hours, which are 7am to 10pm.
Mike Seaton, Store Manager at the Your Coop Food store in Bletchingdon, said: “Our brand-new store is now open for business and my colleagues and I have really enjoyed welcoming local residents.
“It was great to have children from the Bletchingdon Primary School join in the celebrations and help us with the official ribbon cutting. They did a fantastic job and it created a great atmosphere for our new local customers. We look forward to welcoming shoppers in the coming weeks and becoming a part of the local community.”
Following the opening, shoppers can enjoy a number of in-store promotions including an opening offer on 15% off four bottles of wine, available until 9th October.
