New Lincoln Netto store will create 25 jobs

A new branch of Danish international discount supermarket Netto will be opening on Tritton Road in Lincoln later this year, bringing 25 new jobs to the city.

Netto, meaning ‘net price’ in Danish, is expected to open in October in the former Blockbuster Unit on the Lindis Retail Park.

Founded in 1981, the supermarket chain originally came to the UK in 1990. In 2010 Asda bought the shops that Netto had, and the brand left the UK again until November last year where they opened up stores in Sheffield and Leeds.

Now they boast over 1,000 stores across Europe including Sweden, Poland, Germany and the UK.

Tom Hampson, Head of Marketing at Netto Ltd said: “We are delighted to be coming to Tritton Road.

“We are looking forward to bringing our fresh fruit and veg, 100% British meat and freshly baked Danish pastries to the people of Lincoln.”
