Corringham Road Food Store is open!
Our £2m convenience store has opened in a new area of Gainsborough on Corringham Road, offering 19 parking spaces and a range of products and services, including freshly baked bread, local produce, a Tango Ice Blast machine and takeaway Costa drinks- on top of all a customer’s daily essentials.
The shop, which is open from 7am to 10pm seven days a week, has created 15 new jobs in the local area.
Energy usage in store is reduced by around 20%, due to the installation of fridge doors throughout, and the store will also provide soft plastic recycling and a free water bottle refill station.
We are an independent co-operative society operating in Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties. The society already operates within Gainsborough, with food stores in Morton and on Heapham Road, a travel branch, pharmacy and post office on Market Street, a pharmacy on Vanessa Drive and a funeral home on North Street.
Customers will be encouraged to become members, enabling them to collect dividend on their purchases, as well as having access to a range of exclusive offers and events.
Already, the branch is raising money through our Community Champions scheme, with funds going to Gainsborough Town Tennis Club, which is located behind the new store.
There’s also a food bank collection point situated in store, with all donations going to Gainsborough Salvation Army.
Our membership and community teams were also in attendance, engaging with local people and collecting their feedback, plus signing up new members and giving out free mince pies.
Manager at Corringham Road Food Store, Kyle Moore, said: “We’ve been really excited for opening day. It’s been great to have so many customers stop by to see what we have to offer.
“The feedback we’ve received so far has been fantastic, and we’re really looking forward to building strong relationships with even more of the local community in Gainsborough.”
