The date for the opening of a new Co-op supermarket and post office in Cromer has been changed.

The Post Office previously announced that it would be opening on June 8, but that date has been revised to June 22.

A Post Office spokesman said: 'The refurbishment of the former Budgens' store into the Co-op supermarket is progressing well. The premises where Cromer Post Office is based are due to re-open on June 22.

'The Post Office will then be open Monday to Saturday from 7am to 10pm. This will be an extra 12 hours of service a week including later closing every day. This will make it more convenient for customers to visit.'

A Co-op spokesman confirmed that its store would be opening on June 22.
