A major supermarket chain is opening a new store which will be run off renewable electricity.
The Co-op will be welcoming its first customers to its newest branch in Wouldham, near Rochester, this week.
Store manager Mark Jones said: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to launch Co-op’s newest store.
"Our aim is to operate at the heart of local life and we are looking forward to welcoming members and customers into their new Co-op – we have worked to create the range, choice, products and added services to create a really compelling offer to serve the community, conveniently."
The 3,000 sq ft site in Peters Village will have customer car parking, a free ATM, Fairtrade coffee machine and bakery, fresh products, everyday essentials, food-to-go, alcohol, ready meals and free-from, vegan and plant-based products.
The shop – which will be run on 100% renewable electricity – will also offer an Amazon parcel collection and support up to 15 jobs.
Students who are TOTUM cardholders – the new name for NUS extra – can claim a 10% discount.
The Co-op will open its doors on Friday and will then be operating between 7am and 11pm daily.
