More than 300 residents came out to the opening of a new supermarket in South Norfolk.
Residents awaited the opening of the East of England Co-op Supermarket today, Thursday, 26 October, in Harleston.
The ribbon was cut by community members Annie Chapman BEM and Carol Wiles MBE.
The store replaces the former Co-op food store on London Road which was taken on by Co-op from the former Budgens on the site.
All of the Budgens colleagues were transferred to the new Co-op.
