A Desborough Co-op has been given a fresh look after an investment of £156,000.

The Central England Co-op in High Street now has new signs, new fridges and freezers, a refreshed kiosk area, an updated product range and a brand new Costa Coffee machine.

This follows the store’s staff members working around the clock to ensure vulnerable people across the community have continued to have access to vital food and essentials through the coronavirus pandemic.

Store manager Rebecca Wilkinson said: “We have been so excited about the investment in the store after what has been a really challenging year.

“This has been my first store manager role and I started the Christmas before Covid-19 became a reality so it has been a really testing first year and to have this light at the end of the tunnel has been such a boost for us all and feels like a real pat on the back for a job well done.

“We have had a really good reaction so far from the community and I would like to thank everyone for their patience while the work has taken place it is really appreciated.

"We have had lots of interest in what has been going on and I hope they agree with us that it has all been worth it.”
