New Lincolnshire Co-op store opens in Wragby after £1.5m relocation

The doors of a new Lincolnshire Co-op food store in Wragby were opened on Friday, November 13 after a £1.5 million relocation.

Replacing the former shop on Market Place, the new Lincoln Road store has seen the 14-strong team joined by three new members of staff.

The purpose-built food store will have a much bigger range of products for customers as well as a new in store bakery and an ATM.

It will be open from 7am until 10pm seven days a week.

A car park, just off Poacher’s Chase, has 17 spaces for shoppers and the society has also made improvements to the Lincoln Road bus stop.

The new store has a unique look which aims to mirror the barns on the site and was designed by local architects Framework.

Lincolnshire Co-op has also turned one of the barns on the corner of the site into a retail unit to let.
