MORE than 20 jobs look set to be created with the opening of a new £2m supermarket convenience store in Tenby.

The Co-op is the third supermarket giant to gain a foothold in the town, and plans to open its new shop this spring.
The company revealed last year that it hoped to use the former Post Office vehicle repair workshop at The Green for the 2,500 square foot shop which will have its own dedicated car parking.
Planning permission was subsequently granted, with an application for signage due to be considered soon by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.
A spokesperson for The Co-op told the Western Telegraph this week: “The Co-op is investing to transform and grow its convenience business and we are delighted to have an opportunity to create a new store with which to serve the community.
“The store will have a focus on fresh and healthy produce, meal ideas, chilled beers and wines and essentials.
“The Co-op is investing around £2M in the development.
“The Co-op is also investing in lowering prices of everyday essentials, including fresh fruit and vegetables.
“Around 22 full and part time retail roles will be created at the store.
“The Co-op’s new and refitted stores also have a community pioneer role, where a member of the food store team will also work to foster involvement in community activities, from local fundraising initiatives to helping to understand and develop solutions to meet community needs, including support for the British Red Cross – the Co-op’s new charity partnership which will help to tackle social isolation and loneliness in local communities.
“It is hoped that the store will open this spring to serve the community.“We are confident that a new-look Co-operative food store will become a real asset to the community.”
