The Co-op has said it plans to open a new food store at the former Highbury Barn pub in Great Cornard next May.

The company said it has agreed a deal to open a new store on the site of the former pub in Canhams Road, with 25 car parking spaces.

Initial plans to build a supermarket were turned down in 2012, before being revised and approved.

Parech Pancholi, regional acquisitions manager for Co-operative Food, said: “The location is ideal for us, and we are very confident the new store will be an asset to Great Cornard and the wider area.”
