THE Co-operative Travel say they will not move out of Stourport amidst uncertainty over the future of their current premises.

The travel company has a branch at the Midcounties Co-operative Food store on Lombard Street.

The future of the food store is currently in limbo as the group say it "does not fit" with their "long-term strategy."

A spokesperson for the Midcounties Co-operative Food said: "No decision has been made on the future of these stores at this time and they continue to trade as usual."

Now, the travel division of the company has reassured residents it is "fully committed" to the town and that they would relocate if they can no longer trade at their current premises.

Natalie Turner, from Midcounties Co-operative Travel said: “Co-operative Travel remains fully committed to Stourport, which is a high performing branch within our network of 57 high street travel agencies across England’s mid counties.

"Co-operative Travel Stourport is currently located within the Co-operative Food store and should it not be possible to trade in the food store in the future, we will relocate in Stourport, in order to maintain our presence here.”

The Lombard Street Midcounties Co-operative Food store was reopened in 2016 following a £1.2million renovation which saw the introduction of new facilities and services to create a "village under one roof".

The 17-week renovation project welcomed a Post Office, Coffee Republic café, Co-operative Healthcare and Co-operative Travel branches.
