Co-operative supermarket to open in Saltshouse Road, east Hull
A NATIONAL supermarket chain has snapped up an empty site in east Hull.
About £350,000 has been spent building a new Co-operative store next to the Royal Charter pub, on Saltshouse Road.
To celebrate the investment, the Lord Mayor of Hull, Councillor Danny Brown, and principal of nearby Wilberforce College, David Cooper, will perform a ribbon-cutting ceremony next Monday.
They will be joined by store manager Russell Freakes and the college will receive a £200 donation and a Nintendo Wii for the its common room.

Mr Freakes said: "The Co-operative is a community retailer and we are committed to playing a real role in local life.
"It is fantastic that the Lord Mayor and local college can join us to share our special day.
"Our stores provide an ideal location for people to shop locally.
"It is important to all the members of staff here that we meet people's needs and we are all looking forward to welcoming our new customers."
The store will offer extensive ranges of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as higher welfare meat and fish.
As the leading supermarket supporter of Fairtrade foods, the company's extensive Fairtrade range will also be on offer.
Residents have welcomed news of the store opening and say it will be well used.
Shirley Brooks and husband Stephen live in nearby St Bartholomews Way.
Mrs Brooks said: "We'll definitely use it for essential items and, although there is an Asda nearby, it's nice to have a bit of variety.
"It's great that The Co-operative have built the new store and are making the most of the site.
"I've been trying to find out for a while when it would be open.
"We'll be having a wander down to the shop to see what it has to offer."
