    East of England Co-op opens ‘cashless’ store in Ipswich Station

    The East of England Co-op has announced the opening a brand-new convenience store, located in Ipswich Train Station.

    The new 1,500 sq. ft. cashless store will feature two Barista Coffee-to-go machines, the East of England Co-op’s popular in-store bakery, Tango Ice Blast dispenser and Fwip Ice Cream dispenser. It will also stock chilled beers, ciders, wines and ready to drink cocktails. 

    The new store will be accessible from the main concourse of the station, on the Great Eastern Main Line which spans Norwich to London Liverpool Street.

    “We’re thrilled to be opening a food store at Ipswich Station, during what is an exciting time for the town and county,” Doug Field, chief executive of the East of England Co-op, said.

    “We’re looking forward to meeting our new customers, commuters and thousands of football fans visiting the town to watch Premier League football at Portman Road. 

    “At the East of England Co-op, it’s important to us to provide our customers with exciting products, exceptional customer service as well as access to our community outreach programmes.”

    This is the third new convenience store the retailer has announced so far this year, with further new stores planned for Bishop’s Stortford and Thetford. They’ve also opened a new funeral branch and travel branch this year, as it continues to reshape its family of businesses.
