A new food store is to open in Boston, creating seven jobs and representing a £1.3m investment in the town.

Lincolnshire Co-op opens its new outlet in Woodville Road on Thursday, April 28.

Based on the site of the former Lord Nelson pub, it replaces the business’ existing store in Woodville Road – which is directly opposite it.

The new purpose-built new is three times bigger than its predecessor and will have a much wider range of products including more fresh and frozen goods and a chilled beer and wine section.

It will also feature a new in store bakery and an cash machine.

A much larger car park will be available for customers and the store will be open from 7am until 10pm seven days a week.

Seven jobs have been created and the existing 10-strong team will transfer over to the new site.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s store development manager Matthew Wilkinson said: “We’re looking forward to opening the doors of our new food store in Woodville Road. It’s three times bigger than the current store and we hope customers will appreciate the extra space and extra products we are able to provide.”

Lincolnshire Co-op will shortly be opening the doors of another new food store in Old The £1.2m outlet, off Meadow Way, will replace the existing store and feature a better layout and a 32-space car park. Work is ongoing at the site and it is hoped the store will be open in June.
