The shop will have a new scheme in place which will see money donated to local charities

The Co-op on Bexleyheath’s Long Lane will be reopening next week following a £450,000 renovation.

The store will open its doors on Friday, July 14, and will now feature self-service check-outs.

The rejuvenated Co-op will also bring funding for local community groups through its membership scheme. Members receive a five per cent reward on purchases of own-branded products, and a further one per cent going directly to either Bexleyheath and District Club for the Disabled, or Christ Church Bexleyheath.

Kevin Tooth, area manager, said: “We’re moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum and our ambition is to establish the store as a local hub, a real asset for the community. It is an exciting time for the whole team.

“The return to our clover leaf logo aims to re-establish the shop as a centre for the community.”

There are offers and promotions taking place to mark the reopening, and students will receive a 10 per cent discount off their purchases.
