The Food Warehouse will be joining Greggs, B&M and Home Bargains on the Breckland Retail Park, which is bringing 200 jobs to Thetford.

It has applied for planning permission to attach its branding and signage to Unit D on the development, on the former Tulip site off London Road.

A spokesman said: "The planning application relates to the proposed opening of one of our larger Food Warehouse stores.

"This is currently scheduled for early 2020, but the date is subject to confirmation. The new store will create approximately 25 new jobs."

Its move onto Breckland Retail Park leaves just one of the site's five units vacant.
