New £1.2m food store opens

Customers are enjoying shopping in a new spacious and modern £1.2m food store in Old Leake, near Boston. 

Lincolnshire Co-op’s new outlet off Meadow Way replaces the old branch in Church Road.

The purpose-built food store is more spacious with a bigger range of fresh products like fruit and veg, a food-to-go section, chilled beers and wines and an in store bakery. The busy post office is also due to relocate to the site.

Four jobs have been created and the existing food store and post office staff transferred over to the new site.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Store Development Manager Matt Wilkinson said: “Our Old Leake Food Store was very popular so we’re delighted to be providing the village with a new, modern store which will have more fresh products and a better layout. 

“The post office is an important facility for the community and we’ll be continuing to provide that community service. The large car park will also make access to the store much easier for our customers.”

The opening saw local school children from Wrangle Primary School cut the ribbon, plus a visit from Boston MP Matt Warman. 

Alongside the food store and post office, Lincolnshire Co-op has created two retail units on the site. These aim to be open by mid-summer and will bring new businesses to the village – Old Leake Fish and Chip Shop and Emily’s Bakehouse, a coffee shop serving breakfast, lunch and homemade cakes.
