Central England Co-op’s eight remaining travel branches will close after the group announced plans on Thursday (9 July) "move away from travel".
Midcounties Co-op has confirmed it will take on 16 Central England agencies and reopen them in mid-August, growing its total store count to more than 70.
The Central England branches in Bourne, Rushden, Scunthorpe, St Ives, Great Barr, St Neots, Stirchley and Wisbech will all shut.
Staff from all eight sites are being consulted, and where possible, will be offered the opportunity to "relocate into other areas" of the business.
A Central England Co-op spokesperson confirmed to TTG there were currently 87 roles across its travel business.
