The Lincolnshire Co-op travel branch in Bridge Street, Horncastle, will soon be closing. The branch’s last trading day will be Thursday 1st September.

All current bookings are being transferred to the team at the Lincolnshire Co-op Louth travel branch and there will be no impact on customers’ holidays.

Though there will no longer be a face-to-face service from Horncastle, customers can get help from Lincolnshire Co-op travel experts in lots of different ways:

  • Call or visit the travel branch in Louth. The team will have details of all existing bookings and they will be able to help between Monday and Saturday – 9am – 5pm, with a 9.45am opening on Wednesdays. The branch can be found at 25 Market Place.
  • Video calls are also available.

Lincolnshire Co-op Head of Travel Wayne Dennett said: “We’re closing the branch due to a range of issues, including the current difficulties in recruiting the experienced colleagues we need to run the service.

“Currently, our other branches have to cover and this isn’t sustainable in the long term, especially as they are back to pre-pandemic customer levels.

“We’d like to thank all our customers for their support over the years. All current bookings are being transferred to our Louth travel branch and there will be no impact on customers’ holidays.

“Our team are still here to provide customers with the best independent holiday advice, as well as the security of our complete financial protection, including ABTA and ATOL bonding.”

If Louth isn’t convenient for customers, Lincolnshire Co-op also runs 12 other travel outlets across its trading area. The remaining Horncastle travel colleague will transfer to another branch.

Lincolnshire Co-op will continue to run a range of services in Horncastle including a food store, pharmacy, post office and funeral home.

The society is also investing in Horncastle and is moving forward with plans to create a new £600k funeral home at the former Travis Perkins site in Bridge Street.
