Co-op Midcounties is opening a new Your Co-op Food store which will stock locally sourced products.

The new food store will be opening on February 6 on Faringdon Road in Southmoor. 

In 2018 a Co-op store, a different company to Co-op Midcounties, opened half a mile away in the adjoining village of Kingston Bagpuize.

The Co-op Midcounties will create 15 new jobs for the area following a £620,000 investment.

The new store will have a 'food market' feel and it will stock over 260 locally sourced fresh products with a wide range of groceries including a 'gin bar' hosting a range of spirits.

Ryan Thomas, store manager at Your Co-op Food store in Southmoor, said: "This is no ordinary store, it’s where quality, passion and great food come together. The team has been working hard to bring the best of local produce to the shelves, and we have an impressive range of artisan and locally made products for customers to enjoy."
