The Co-Operative has today announced that their store in New Malden is set to close next month.

A spokesperson for the Co-operative said: “We can confirm that our food store in New Malden is to close on 14th May.

“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 29 colleagues working at the store.  We would like to thank our shoppers for their valued custom over the years.”

Coombe Monthly have spoken to staff at the Co-Op branch, who anonymously told us that the store was leaving New Malden as “the lease was coming to an end and the rents were too high. As a result, the Co-Op have decided to close it down.”

This paper has been informed from more than one resident that a M&S Simply Food is to open in place of the Co-Operative in New Malden.
