Cooper’s Foods has been serving B.C. communities since 1957, and has become a popular place to shop among local consumers.

The Hope store started renovations in October, and held a grand opening on Nov. 16.

Store Manager, Jeff Lebsack cut the ribbon at noon.

The store remained open throughout  the two-month renovation.

The upgrade include five new tills, which are ergonomically designed to help counteract carpal tunnel syndrome.

The layout of the store has changed, with some walls taken out, and windows added, creating an open concept.

The store has added energy-efficient freezers, and the freezer lights turn off when no one is in the aisle.

All the lights inside Cooper’s are also going to be changed to energy-efficient bulbs this week.

“We are reducing our carbon footprint,” said Lebsack.

The store offers a remodeled produce section, a new bakery that specializes in cupcakes, and a new deli and meat case display.

A flower shelf was also added to the front of the store.

Not only has the store become brighter with decorations, a colourful paint job, and new signage, Cooper’s has also brought in more natural foods and gluten-free products.

Each aisle has a store directory and an itinerary to help find what you need.
