Sandown’s Co-Op store will re-open later this week following a £400,000 makeover, which includes new tills, fridges and a snazzy new frontage.

Over the past couple of weeks contractors have been working hard to transform the outdated store into a modern day Co-Op boasting a wide range of fruit and veg offerings, an in store bakery and convenient checkout options.

Customers will be welcomed into the refreshed High Street outlet from Thursday.
