First Look inside: Waitrose Cheltenham

Waitrose Cheltenham has revealed its new and improved supermarket to SoGlos, including a packaging free 'Unpacked' refillable zone, dedicated sushi bar, cookery school, and café.

Waitrose Cheltenham has undergone a huge refurbishment, with the upmarket supermarket reopening to shoppers on Friday 6 September 2019.

Only the second Waitrose in the UK to have a Waitrose Unpacked station, visitors to Cheltenham’s store will be able to shop packaging free from a selection of dried products and liquids.
