The Co-op store on Chard’s High Street is set to close in the new year, the supermarket has confirmed.

A statement from Co-op said: “We can confirm that our food store in Chard is to close on February 11th 2017.

“The decision to close the store has been made as part of our ongoing store review process, and is in no way a reflection on the hard work and commitment from the 20 colleagues working at the store.  We would like to thank our shoppers for their valued custom over the years.”
