Opening set for new travel branch


Holidaymakers in Retford will have a new place to book exciting trips away when a Lincolnshire Co-op travel branch opens in the town.

The £60,000 outlet in Market Square will be officially opened on Tuesday 19th December.

Two charity donations of £250 will be made during the afternoon celebrations – one to Bassetlaw Hospice in Retford and the other to Face to Face in Kilton, one of the local luncheon clubs currently benefitting from Lincolnshire Co-op’s Community Champions scheme.

Inside the branch, customers will find three travel desks and a seating area for browsing brochures and gathering holiday inspiration.

Its modern design also includes a ceiling-mounted world map to help travellers discover new destinations, plus a Bureau de Change to provide currency for trips away.

People can sign up to become members of Lincolnshire Co-op and earn dividend when they book a holiday or shop at the Society’s outlets. This dividend can then be spent in Lincolnshire Co-op stores or even on their next holiday.

Members also get access to exclusive events, offers and discounts as well as an annual bonus.

Travel Group Manager Wayne Dennett said: “The branch is almost ready and Manager Charlene Markham and her team can’t wait to start helping people find their perfect break.

“Whether you’re after a unique trip abroad or a fun family holiday in the UK, our travel colleagues are independent experts and can give advice on everything from accommodation to tips on what to consider when travelling. And because we’re not tied to any single tour operator, we can offer breaks from more than 200 suppliers."
