This story is over

A brand new community hub of services in Holbeach will open after a £1.2 million investment by Lincolnshire Co-op.

The first stage in the development focused on a brand new food store at the site in Fleet Street.

Shoppers in Holbeach will see an upgraded store which includes an instore bakery, Costa Coffee machine and an improved chilled range.

A hub of services has been also created alongside the food store which includes a pharmacy, post office and library.

The hub will open its doors on Monday, February 13, with an official opening ceremony on Wednesday, February 22.

The new pharmacy will be double the size of the previous site in High Street, as well as having two purpose built consultation rooms, a more efficient space for the dispensary and a separate counter for privacy.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s post office is also moving from High Street and will be a modern branch with three serving counters and extended opening hours for the convenience of customers.

Chief Executive Ursula Lidbetter said: “As a co-op, we share our profits with our members and their communities. One of the ways we do this is through investing in our services and sustaining vital community facilities, such as post offices and libraries.

“Creating this convenient hub is a great way to serve our loyal customers and members in Holbeach.”
