A HEREFORD petrol station has now reopened after months of closure.

After closing in July, the Holmer Road Co-op petrol filling station and store opened again on November 20 after a £1.7million programme of works to overhaul the fuel infrastructure and build a new, larger, food store.

The work at the 24-hour site on the A49 in Hereford, which supports 25 jobs, has seen new fuel tanks, pumps, canopy and forecourt layout, while the store’s retail space has almost trebled in size.

The new-look store now includes Amazon Lockers, customer car parking, Costa coffee express and an in-store bakery.

Craig Emery, Co-op Area Manager, said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to make such a significant investment in our Holmer Road store – we have undertaken an extensive programme of works to enhance the fuel and food offer locally – the site really does have a great look, format and feel. We have worked to develop the range, choice, products and services that will create a really compelling offer locally to serve the community.

“Co-op is committed to connecting communities and making a difference locally, and to operating at the heart of local life. That is why we also want customers to know that they can become a Member of the Co-op. In addition to unlocking additional value and personalised offers, our members make a difference to local causes, with Co-op now donating 2% to community causes every time a Member swipes their Membership card when buying own branded products.”
