PROPOSALS to build a new food store are set to be submitted by the East of England Co-operative Society.

The firm, which is based in Ipswich, has just bought the former Fleetshield garage and workshop premises in East Street, Coggeshall, Essex.

Plans are being prepared for a new food store on the site, which will include customer parking and improved servicing arrangements. It is expected that a planning application will be submitted shortly.

Richard Samson, chief executive, of the East of England Co-op, said: “This is a difficult time for UK retailers, but the Society is financially strong and is able to invest in its businesses, and acquire new stores and properties, without recourse to borrowing.
