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.
