The Co-op have confirmed that they plan to sell a store in Gedling.
The shop on Gedling Road has been sold to a new operator, who will takeover the store in July.
It’s believed the store has been sold to The Highbury Vale Limited – a Notts-based company who run several Londis stores in the city.
Gedling Eye contacted Co-op after readers got in touch with us about rumours of a sale.
The retailer today confirmed to us that the store is to be sold and jobs protected.
A spokesperson for Co-operative Group, who own the store, said: “The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum and while this often involves opening new stores, we also regularly review our existing locations.
“The decision to sell any store is not taken lightly and, only after careful consideration is our store in Gedling Road to be sold.
“Our priority has been to safeguard local jobs, and colleagues – who have been informed – will transfer under Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) regulations (TUPE) to the new operator.
They added: “We would like to thank the community for its support of the store over the years.”
The last day of trading as a Co-op store is expected to be July 9, 2022
A Co-op store is located nearby on Westdale Road which is owned by the Central England Co-operative.
