Iceland set to close its Bromsgrove town centre store

Bromsgrove Editorial 21st Jan, 2023 Updated: 21st Jan, 2023   0

BROMSGROVE’S Iceland store in the town centre is set to close on February 25.

Signs in the shop advise customers to use the Iceland Food Warehouse on the Birmingham Road Retail Park.

The Iceland Food Warehouse opened in October 2018 and is larger with a wider range.

But this will be a blow, particularly to elderly and vulnerable people who would prefer a town centre store.




The 12 Mill Lane building Iceland currently occupies was built in the 1970s, along with ten adjacent smaller units along the same stretch and into the High Street.

Historian Pat Tansell sheds light on its past.


She said: “It originally occupied by Key Markets which was a small supermarket.

“Bejam which sold frozen foods took over the site from Key Markets circa 1984.

“I think Iceland have been in Mill Lane since 1989 when Iceland acquired the Bejam stores.”

The Standard has been contacting Iceland Foods for the past fortnight, both by phone and email, but no-one has returned our calls and messages.

The news comes after the revelation that the town’s M&Co clothing store is set to close.

The Post Office has also advised residents to use its branches when NatWest shuts at the end of the month.
