Sixth Lincoln Costa ready to open in Carlton Centre

Lincoln’s sixth Costa coffee shop is ready to open on Saturday, June 8, just four weeks after the fifth Costa opened on the High Street.

The new shop, which has a unit in the Carlton Centre next to Argos, created 10 jobs in the local area, and all positions were filled using help from Lincoln Jobcentre.

Store manager Helen Burns said: “The unit had been empty for a while, it’s a prime position and the Carlton Centre is a really busy area now with some big shops here.

“What makes this Costa different is that it’s in a retail park, but the centre has its own feel to it. Such as today it’s really summery, so it almost has a holiday feel to it.

She added: “We’re going to be setting up a Costa in Valentine Retail Park next. There’s no solid date yet, but there’s definitely going to be one there in the next few months.”
