A revamped Co-op store and filling station has opened at Wareham, Dorset, after a £1.9m redevelopment.

Eight new jobs will be provided by the new-look filling station on Sandford Road, according to the retailer.

Co-op store manager Lianne Fransen said: “We are delighted to have undertaken such a significant investment in Sandford and are very proud to be part of the community.”

The new store includes an eight-pump forecourt, in-store bakery, hot food zone and Costa Coffee.

Co-op area manager Dave Boyd said: “The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum, and our ambition is to ensure the store is a local hub for people living in the area.

“We also want shoppers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op. Our members make a difference locally and simply by swiping their membership card when they shop with us, they are raising much needed funding for organisations who contribute to improving local life.”
