A new 10,000 sq ft food store is preparing to open at Boston Shopping Park.

The Food Warehouse will be moving onto the site off Horncastle Road.

The chain – part of the Iceland family – is a relatively new retailer, having been trading for just under two years.

There are currently 14 Food Warehouse stores across England and Wales selling a wide range of frozen, chilled, fresh, branded grocery and homeware lines.

A spokesman for the business said particular expertise lies with frozen, with a variety of meats, fish, vegetables and ready-to-cook meals on offer including speciality meats such as ostrich.

They added: “Extra attention has been paid to the fresh and chilled offerings enabling customers to shop across multiple categories. Those looking to save can make big savings with ‘Case Savers’ where bulk savings are passed onto the customer. There are special ‘When It’s Gone It’s Gone’ deals too where customers can purchase selected homeware lines at great value.”

It seems likely, though it has not been confirmed, the business will be moving into the unit vacated by Morrison’s as reported here.

Iceland, earlier this month, commented on rumours it would be opening a store in the old Morrison shop here, saying nothing had been confirmed.

Brantano has also recently closed at the site, but this is to become a Poundworld – for more click here.
