Refurbishment of former Budgens store

East of England Co-op to take on former O’Flynns Budgens store in Acle

The East of England Co-op has announced it will be opening a new food store in Acle later this year, having successfully purchased the former O’Flynns Budgens store on Norwich Road.

The 5,985sqft store will close in spring 2017 for refurbishment works to create a new generation East of England Co-op supermarket, with the opening scheduled for summer 2017.

Roger Grosvenor, Joint Chief Executive for the East of England Co-op said: “Having been a part of the Acle community for a number of years, we’re delighted to be opening a new, larger store which will allow us to expand our services and range of products for our members and customers.”

The East of England Co-op food store on Main Street will remain open until the newly renovated supermarket opens its doors. Colleagues will then transfer to the new supermarket, joining the current team at the O’Flynns Budgens store who are all being transferred to the local retailer.

Roger added: “It was important to us that we protected the jobs of colleagues at our Main Street store as well as colleagues from the former O’Flynns Budgens, who’ve been providing a service to the local community for many years.

“Over the coming months all of us at the East of England Co-op will be working hard to deliver a store that Acle can be proud of.”
