Ipswich trading units.

You'll have to here for my reflections on the former Department store but at least these units are still trading. And the Co-operative Education Centre shows how seriously East Of England takes member education. You can just see the shadow of where the word 'co-operative' used to be on this Argos branch. Hope for the future.
