East of England Co-op opens first Cambridgeshire store in Waterbeach

The East of England Co-op, which has more than 120 food stores across Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex, has opened its first food store in Cambridgeshire in its 150-year history, in Waterbeach.

The 3,000sq ft store on Capper Road is open seven days a week and features a Costa coffee machine along with hot and cold food to go, plus parcel services through DPD and In-Post. On-site parking is available.

Branch manager Damian Johnson said: “Having met lots of people in the community over the summer, it’s been exciting to finally be able to open our doors to them.

“At our Co-op we take care to get to know and support the people living near our stores, so I’m pleased to share that we’ll be kicking off our support in Waterbeach by sponsoring the Under-11s football team, Colts FC, for its next season.

“I can already see this is going to be a lovely village to be part of and me and my team have loved hearing from residents about how pleased they are to see our Co-op opening here.”

The East of England Co-op is owned by its members – made up of customers, colleagues and communities. It is an independent retailer in East Anglia, with over 230 branches across Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire.

The member-owned co-operative has donated over £1 million to good causes in East Anglia over the last three years through its Community Cares Fund which supports groups that have a positive impact in their local community. When the next round of funding launches, grants will be available to communities across Cambridgeshire for the first time.
