A CONVENIENCE store is to close while improvements take place.

The East of England Co-op store in The Centre, Greenstead, Colchester, will be temporarily closed next week.

An email sent to customers and seen by the Gazette says: "We're improving your Greenstead food store and the service we offer you.

"Unfortunately, this means we'll have to close the store on Sunday, December 10 at 10pm. Your improved store will re-open on Tuesday, December 12 at 6am, offering an extended range of fresh and frozen food.

"We look forward to welcoming you back once your store has been improved."
