Godmanchester Co-Op to reopen on Thursday after £424,000 revamp
The Co-operative Food Store in Godmanchester is undergoing a £424,000 transformation.
The shop in Cambridge Road is currently closed while work takes place, including expanding the in-store bakery.
Staff at the store are receiving additional training to enable them to provide help and advice to customers with meal ideas.
The store will reopen on Thursday, March 13, and staff have chosen local resident Maria George to have star status for the day.
Maria will cut the ribbon at the official opening and is being recognised for her tireless efforts working for the community over many years: running a playgroup, volunteering in schools and helping out with youth groups and a luncheon club for elderly people.
