Work has started preparing land in Newmarket for a new Co-operative Food store.
The store should be completed by early 2014.
It will have a sales area of around 3,000 sq ft.
The site, the former Brown’s Car Showroom, will have two further retail units alongside the Co-operative Food store and six residential units to the rear accessed off Watts Lane.
Before the land was fenced off it was used by teenagers as an unofficial play area.
