The closure of a superstore marked the end of an era yesterday. [FRI]
The Co-op at Station Road, Annfield Plain, near Stanley, County Durham, closed yesterday and will re-open in a few months as a Tesco supermarket.
Ten full-time and 38 part-time staff are to transfer to Tesco.
The closure ends a Co-op link with the village going back 100 years.
The previous store was demolished and rebuilt brick by brick in nearby Beamish Open Air Museum.
