The Co-op has opened a new-look convenience store in central London that showcases the retailer’s first-ever coffee counter.
The new 2168sq ft store on Baker street is the Co-op’s third On The Go convenience concept store, and follows a £2.1 million investment to support up to 50 jobs in the local community.
The store also features the Co-op’s own Ever Ground Coffee counter, with the addition of two Ever Ground coffee machines.

The Co-op said its Ever Ground brand is 100 per cent Fairtrade and the counter will additionally sell a range of hot food and in-store bakery items.
“We’re really looking forward to bringing the new concept store and coffee counter to Baker Street,” Co-op coffee buyer Jenna Thomas said.
“With its fantastic location within the station, we will offer ease, speed, quality and convenience for commuting consumers in the city.
“Fairtrade is central to our core business values and we are delighted to support the scheme in this new concept with our new, full-bodied, great tasting freshly ground coffee, that’s grounded in good.”
The retailer said “a greater understanding” of its customers is what resulted in the creation of a grab-and-go proposition.
The Baker Street new store will also have a free water refill station, an orange juice machine, frozen drinks and a milkshake machine.
Other treats available include hot food, impulse bakery products, sushi and donuts, as well as sandwich, salads, pasta, snacking, ready meals, wines, chilled drinks and everyday essentials which completes the Co-op’s grab-and-go mission.
