A Co-op Food has opened at Barking Riverside.
The ribbon was cut at the store in Rivergate Square, Minter Road on Thursday, July 30.
Representatives from the King George and Queen’s Hospitals Charity received a £2,000 donation to support their work as part of the launch day activities.
The store opens 7am-11pm daily and includes an in-store bakery. Co-op members receive a 5per cent reward on purchases of own brand products, and the store donates a further 1pc to community causes.
The retailer’s Food Share scheme works to minimise food waste by working with community not-for-profit organisations to donate to those in need.
