Lincolnshire Co-op Grantham Travel branch to relocate as part of £120k investment

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Grantham Travel branch will be relocating after investing £120,000 into to a new unit on the High Street.

It will move from its current home at Downtown Garden Centre in Great Gonerby to 57 High Street.

Inside, the new unit will be five desks for the expert travel team to give advice and book holidays, plus a Bureau de Change to provide foreign currency.

There will also be design touches including a ceiling-mounted world map, plus hot drink facilities and a seating area so people can relax while planning their next break.

The branch is expected to open in the unit on Monday, March 26.

Until then, the Grantham Travel branch team will continue to offer their expert advice and take bookings at their current location at Downtown Garden Centre.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Travel Group Manager Wayne Dennett said: “Our Grantham Travel branch has been based at Downtown Garden Centre in Gonerby Moor for over five years. It’s a popular place to visit and has been a fantastic location for us, however an opportunity to bring the team’s valued services to Grantham High Street was too good to resist.

“We’re excited to be refitting the unit and creating a new home for the branch.”

Richard Broadhead, Managing Director at Oldrids & Downtown, said: “We have an excellent relationship with Lincolnshire Co-op and we’re sorry to see them leave the Garden Centre.

“Lincolnshire Co-op’s Boston Travel branch also continues to trade from our store there.”
