The partial closure is due to recruitment, which means colleagues are currently shared with another nearby store.

A spokesman for Co-op said: “Our Old Duston store will close earlier than usual on three days this week.

"We are currently recruiting for additional colleagues in the area to serve the community and the temporary change enables colleagues to be shared with another store nearby.

"We have informed the community in advance, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

The store will resume its usual opening hours from Saturday (July 24).
