A notice on the shutters says: “Due to structural problems with the roof, unfortunately this store is closed until further notice.”

The company has not elaborated on the nature of the problems, and was unable to give an estimated date of when it is likely to open again.

A Co-op spokesperson said: “The safety and security of our colleagues and customers is of paramount importance and we have had to temporarily close our store on St John Street in Bridlington due to a structural issue with the building whilst investigations take place.

“We apologise to customers for any inconvenience.

They added that they open the St John Street branch would open ‘as soon as possible’ but it was unknown how long any repair work would take, and they would update customers with information when appropriate.
