A MAJOR supermarket will return to the high road after an absence of more than 30 years, the Times can reveal.
Co-op have announced they will be opening a branch in the heart of Wembley Town Centre which is in the midst of a �90m makeover.
The 10,000 sq ft store, which will be opening its doors next month, is a welcomed return to the area after its former Wembley branch closed in the late 1970s.
Killian Morris, senior development manager at St. Modwen, the company heading up the multi-million regeneration, said the area is becoming a magnet for more and more high street names.
