A new Co-op store is set to open in Wimbledon following a £646,000 investment.

The new store will open in Haydons Road on November 23. This is the second Co-op to open in Merton this month after the Mitcham store, which is due to open this Thursday (November 16).

Area manager Tristan Suppiah said: “We are delighted to have undertaken such a significant investment in Wimbledon and excited to have the opportunity to serve the community.

“The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum. Our ambition is to ensure the store is a local hub, a real asset for the community.

"We also want shoppers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op and that we are also giving back to the community.

“Our members make a difference locally and simply by swiping their membership card when they shop with us they are raising much needed funding for organisations in their area who contribute to improving local life.”
