The Co-operative Travel branch in Kidlington, Oxfordshire, and its neighbouring Co-operative Food store have undergone a £540,000 joint refurbishment.

The agency has new furnishings and modular window displays which were designed with customer feedback.

It can be accessed via the food store and the high street, to encourage higher footfall and more collaboration between the food and travel divisions on joint community and customer events.

coop-staffOne of Co-operative Travel’s 58 travel agencies, the store is managed by Zoe Tiscornia and her team of four travel experts, who together have more than 70 years of industry experience.

Tiscornia specialises in long-haul and luxury holidays while Lesley Wright is the branch’s cruise expert.

The store also has a travel money bureau.

Tiscornia said: “As a co-operative, making a difference to the local community is a huge priority for us and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our customers a fresh, new travel agency, where they can come to plan and book their next getaway as well as pick up all their holiday essentials.

“Co-operative Travel was named ‘Central England Large Agency of the Year’ by Travel Weekly for the sixth consecutive year in 2018 thanks to our extensive offering, and to have a stylish, new-look for 2019, is the icing on the cake.”
