The Co-op group is to move its food store in Fordham to a new location in the town.

The change is part of plans by Co-op Group to open 100 new stores this year, creating 1,600 jobs, and to refit or relocate a further 150 outlets.

Jo Whitfield, chief executive of Co-op Food, said: “The Co-op is positively responding to the changes occurring within this dynamic sector. Our food business is going from strength to strength in what is clearly a challenging retail market.

“We have the ambition for our stores to be at the heart of local life, bringing communities together and offering our members and customers great quality products when and where they need them.”

Co-op Group, which is separate to the East of England Co-op, has around 30 food stores in Norfolk and Suffolk.
