“Whilst we understand some people will be disappointed by this news, we can reassure customers that the store will continue serving shoppers as normal and all colleagues will continue working in other roles in store.”

The closure of the café will mean that the upstairs area of the store will be turned into additional storage to help make chain's click and collect service ‘even quicker and easier for customers'.

The spokesperson confirmed that the Chineham café will be the only one to close in the Basingstoke area.
