Plans to take on former Budgens Store

In this section

The East of England Co-op has announced they are to purchase the former Budgens store, subject to contract, on Hamblin Road in Woodbridge.

The 7,000 sq. foot store will be one of our new generation supermarkets stocking a wide range of its multi-award winning Sourced Locally produce, Deli-to-Go range, beers, wines and spirits and in-store 

Other services will include an ATM, Subway, Collect + and home delivery. Customers will also have access to free customer parking. The current Post Office will continue to provide a service to the local community from the store.

Roger Grosvenor, our Joint Chief Executive said: “Having been a part of the Woodbridge community for a number of years, we’re delighted to be expanding the services and range we’re able to offer to our customers and members.”

“We’ll be making a significant investment in the store on Hamblin Road, with a period of closure required to allow us to carry out all of the work we need to do the bring the store up to standard. We will, however, endeavour to maintain access to the Post Office and its services.”

The new-look supermarket will be open later this year following extensive refurbishment.

As the largest independent retailer in the region, we have been serving local communities for over 150 years from over 130 branches. We currently have four branches in Woodbridge: Co-op Daily food stores on Thoroughfare, Hasketon Road and Old Barrack Road, and a recently opened funeral services branch on Quayside.
