A supermarket in a Norfolk town is due to change hands later this year when the East of England Co-Op takes over a Budgens store.

The two organisations have exchanged contracts on the site in Bullock Fair Close, Harleston.

Once the deal has been completed, the store will close for refurbishment before reopening in summer 2017.

No jobs are to be lost as part of the move, with those currently working at Budgens transferring to the East of England Co-Op.

The East of England Co-op food store in London Road, Harleston will remain open until the newly-renovated supermarket opens its doors. Staff there will then transfer to the new store.
