Walton Co-op to move into old amusement arcade during £600,000 revamp
10:30am Tuesday 25th September 2012 in News
A HIGH Street food shop in Walton will move to a former seafront amusement arcade while its building is revamped.
The town’s High Street Co-op store is about to receive a £600,000 transformation.
The business has moved to a disused amusement arcade on the corner of The Parade and Old Pier Street.
It will be there for about two months while work takes place.
Roger Grosvenor, executive officer for the East of England Co-operative said: “The Society has taken steps to ensure our members and customers will not be left without supplies while the work takes place.
“We have secured a vacant property on the seafront for the duration of the store’s closure to supply customers with their daily provisions.”
The temporary store was set to open its doors on Sunday, but due to a problem with the phone lines the opening has been delayed until this Thursday.
