Sainsbury's has announced it plans to replace the B&Q store at Colchester's Hythe.

The proposed redevelopment will create around 300 jobs. B&Q said it is committed to Colchester and will look for an alternative site.

Its employees have been told of its intention to close the store and to find an alternative site.

Andrew McDonnell, Divisional Director of London & East Anglia, B&Q, said:

“We have been in Colchester for nearly 30 years and we remain committed to serving the community of Colchester. Through this deal we intend to secure a new store and to offer our Colchester customers the best home improvement products and services, along with the help and advice needed to undertake their projects.
