Boston Tesco to expand with three new services

This story is over

Plans have been submitted to add a Timpson’s dry cleaning, key cutting and shoe and watch repair pod at Tesco on Westbridge Road in Boston.

If given approval, the pod will be the latest addition to the site which already includes a food store and petrol station.

The proposal is to install the new kiosk at the front of the store by relocating two disabled car parking spaces and installing six new bollards.

The application states that Timpson’s is not a destination store in its own right and it relies heavily on existing footfall to be viable.

The report says: “The pod will offer the customer the convenience of providing Timpson’s services at their local superstore and will have a synergy with the existing food store operation.”

Tesco’s has already introduced Timpson’s pods at several sites across the UK including its site on Wragby Road in Lincoln.
