Anglia Co-operative has been quick to act to stem speculation surrounding its 15 branches.
Paul Dale, group specialist retail manager with the Peterborough-based retail co-operative, said: "The announcement of potential closures and job losses with Thomas Cook Group travel branches does not affect in any way those trading as Co-operative Travel and owned by Anglia Co-operative.
"Wednesday's news was very unfortunate, but we want to assure all of our customers that it's business as usual for us and their holidays are in safe hands."
