Tesco is to open a new store in Swaffham, it was announced today (Thursday).
The developer Millngate has bought a three acre site on the EcoTech Business Park, in Castle Acre Road, from Breckland Council.
Swaffham currently has an Asda store in Lynn Street, just off the Market Place, and a Waitrose also in Castle Acre Road, a few hundred yards from the new Tesco site.
A recent retail study commissioned by the council revealed that 49pc of those questioned in the area chose to travel to other towns to do their weekly shop.
Tesco is due to hold a public exhibition on the plans early in the new year.
