Wragby’s long-awaited new Lincolnshire Co-Operative store - built at a cost of £1.5m - will open for business on Friday.

The development, on Lincoln Road, replaces the Co-op’s now former store in Market Place.

The company is promising customers a ‘bigger and better’ shopping experience.

It will employ a 14-strong team and has led to the creation of three new jobs.

The store will have a much bigger range of products, as well as a new in-store bakery and an ATM.

It will be open from 7am until 10pm seven days a 
week.

A car park, just off Poacher’s Chase, has 17 spaces for shoppers and the Co-op has also made improvements to the Lincoln Road bus stop.

The new store has a unique look which aims to mirror the barns on the site and was designed by local architects Framework.

The Co-op has also turned one of the barns on the corner of the site into a retail unit to 
let.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s store development manager Matthew Wilkinson said: “We’re really pleased to be investing in Wragby to bring the community a brand new food store.

“We know our many loyal customers will be looking forward to using the new store which offers a bigger range, easier parking and a pleasant shopping experience.”
