Walsall Wood’s brand, spanking new Co-op will open on Thursday, 21st March. A great thing for The Wood, and nice to see some competition for the overpriced Tesco Express, opposite.

Friend of the blog Lee Braggington, Walsall Wood Group Scout Leader, has been in touch to let me know that the new Co-op store at Streets corner will finally open this coming Thursday, 21st March 2013, as I noted on my 365daysofbiking journal on Wednesday. Thanks also to longtime reader Jeepboy who tipped me off the previous day.

The Co-op are noted for the fine community relations, and it’s great to hear from lee that they’re already getting stuck into community activities in Walsall Wood.

Hi Bob

You may already be aware of this but I thought it may be worth an email if not, that the new Co-op at Streets Corner, Walsall Wood is opening on Thursday 21st March at 9am.

I know this as we have been invited to be part of the opening event and hope to have a number of our members along in uniform on the day.

I would also like to praise the manager and her staff for their assistance last weekend when they undertook some community work and helped up to clear bushes and litter pick on the former Oak Park depot adjacent to the Walsall Wood School.

The staff are a great team and we hope the store will be an asset to the area.

Kind regards,


Group Scout Leader

Thanks to Lee for letting me know – Lee does great work with the local kids, and it’s always good to hear about positive community activities like this. My best wishes to the staff of the new store for their opening.

    Strange thing is Clanger residents have received flyers and vouchers through the door which were assumed to be promoting the new store, but on closer inspection are redeemable at the Chasetown store !
