A SUPERMARKET has reopened its doors just two months after being damaged in an accidental fire.

The Co-op Food store in Steventon near Abingdon was damaged in a fire in September.

The store has since been stripped back to the walls with all flooring, ceiling, shelving, fridges and freezers being replaced. It’s also reopened with a new layout and range of produce.

The team celebrated its reopening with ribbon cutting and a special visit from Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue who attended to the fire. As a gesture of thanks, a hamper was also presented to the crew by the store manager Lewis Broyd and the store team.

Lewis Broyd, store manager, said: “A massive thank you to all of those who were involved in helping us reopen our Steventon store so quickly. It’s been a huge effort and it’s been great to hear such positive feedback already on our new layout and product range.

“We know our store has been massively missed by our local members and customers, just as much as we’ve missed them. We’re so pleased to be back serving the local community and welcoming them back”

The stores’ opening hours will be 7am to 10pm every day throughout the week.
