A new Co-op supermarket and Post Office will open at the former Budgens' store in the High Street, Cromer on June 8 after a revamp.

The Budgens' store and Post Office closed in March.

A Post Office spokesman said: 'The refurbishment of the former Budgens' store into the Co-op supermarket is progressing well. The premises where Cromer Post Office is based are due to re-open on June 8.

'The Post Office will then be open Monday to Saturday from 7am to 10pm. This will be an extra 12 hours of service a week including later closing every day. This will make it more convenient for customers to visit.'

A Co-op spokesman confirmed that its store would be opening on June 8.

The lack of a post office has forced customers to travel some distance to access services.

North Norfolk Labour candidate Stephen Burke said: 'It's crazy that Cromer has had to put up without its post office for so long.'
