The Midcounties Co-operative has launched a Click & Collect service in 25 of its Your Co-op Food stores to help support its local communities and suppliers across Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Shropshire, and Staffordshire.
The service will offer fresh, seasonal produce from the Society’s Best of Our Counties range, which is sourced from each store’s home or neighbouring county from local farmers, suppliers or small food producers. Previously the full Best of Our Counties range had only been available in larger Your Co-op Food stores, the pilot has been created to see if its wider range of customers would utilise a click and collect service to access the best locally crafted produce.
From fruit and vegetables, to cheese, pies, cakes and more, the full Best of Our Counties range will be available on the website for customers to place an order to Click & Collect from their nearest participating store. Also, on offer will be food hamper bundles created for a range of occasions including roast dinners, cheese boards, and breakfasts to name a few, as well as festive specials.
Rupert Newman, Chief Food Retail Officer, at The Midcounties Co-operative, said: “We’re so pleased to have launched this Click & Collect service to showcase the exceptional high-quality food and produce that’s in our Best of Our Counties range.
“Via our new Click & Collect service, customers are not only helping to support local suppliers and communities after what’s been a really difficult year, but they’re also helping to cut down thousands of food miles per year which has great environmental benefits too.”
