Co-op store plan approved for Grantham


By Grantham Reporter


South Kesteven District Council has given the green light for a new £1.5 million Lincolnshire Co-op store in Grantham.

The convenience store will be built on the corner of Springfield Road and Hanbury Avenue and is expected to create 15 jobs.

Lincolnshire Co-op said the idea is to provide a “top-up” shop for local people.

The store will be open from 7am until 10pm seven days a week and include 20 parking spaces.

Work is expected to start at the site this summer and the company hopes to open the store in early 2020.

Matt Wilkinson, Lincolnshire Co-op store development manager, said: “We’re excited to have planning permission to build a food store in the centre of Grantham.

“It’s our first food outlet in the town and will join our busy Grantham Travel branch and Barrowby Gate Pharmacy.

“It will provide lots of valued services from food to go and groceries to chilled beers, wines and meal solutions, along with goods sourced from producers in our Love Local range including Grantham Gingerbread.”
