A TRAVEL company with branches in March and Wisbech says they will not be affected by industry job cuts.
The Anglia Co-operative owns travel branches at Broad Street, March and Beales Department Store, Wisbech.
Thomas Cook announced on Wednesday that 2,500 jobs and 195 branches could be lost in a re-shape of the business – but did not reveal the stores on the list for potential closure.
In August last year, Thomas Cook merged with Co-op Travel and Midlands Co-op Travel.
Paul Dale, group specialist retail manager with Anglia Co-operative, said: “The announcement of potential closures and job losses with Thomas Cook Group travel branches does not affect in any way those trading as Co-operative Travel and owned by Anglia Co-operative.
“Wednesday’s news was very unfortunate, but we want to assure all of our customers that it’s business as usual for us and their holidays are in safe hands.”
