A food shop in Dagenham has reopened following a £310,000 transformation.
The Co-operative food store, in Gale Street, cut the ribbon on a new in-store bakery range and a focus on fresh, healthy foods and essentials.
The store is also pioneering a new role, known as a community pioneer, where a member of the food store team will work to foster involvement in community activities, from local fundraising initiatives to helping to understand and develop solutions to meet community needs.
Store manager Tommy Roberts said: “We are thrilled to have made such a significant investment in Dagenham, and delighted that we have a fantastic new food store with which to serve the community – it is an exciting time for the whole team.
“The Co-operative is a community retailer, and we are committed to playing an active role in local life, embracing the area’s community spirit.
