Co-op bosses have promised that their St Mary’s store will be ‘deep cleaned.’

It follows complaints to national management about the cleanliness of the store.

They’ve also agreed to monitor produce more closely. That’s after locals and visitors used social media to highlight past sell-by date or mouldy perishables on sale.

In a statement from their Manchester head office, the supermarket chain says they’re aware of some issues that have occurred recently during the busy summer period.

The Operations Manager visited on Monday with a support team to help overcome them and he will continue to make regular visits to the store over the coming weeks.

The company says that they have strict policies in place regarding the sale of food that is close to its sell-by-date, and they’re not aware of this being breached in St Mary’s.

But the store team have been reminded of the importance of adhering to these policies, they say.

Regional Secretary Andrew North has contacted Alan Davis, who also complained about the shop. He says deep cleaning will take place in late September to minimise disruption and that store management issues are “at hand.”
