Cranfield Coop Store on Mill Road

There are many rumours going around Cranfield about the future of the Mill Road site once the Coop relocates to the Budgens site.

One rumour is that the site has been sold to developers that plan to knock it down to build a new access road as part of a new development. The Chronicle put this rumour to the Coop.

Its spokesperson said:

“We are looking forward to relocating our Cranfield store to a bigger premises so we can offer the community a better range of products and services.

“There are various options available for the potential purchaser of the Mill Road site but as far as we are aware, nothing has been decided at this stage.

“Any decisions will be at the discretion of the purchaser and the relevant planning permissions being approved.”

The new Coop store is planned to open before the end of the year and the Post Office is currently holding a consultation about the proposed move of its branch.
