A new Co-operative food store has opened in North Hykeham after a £600,000 investment, creating 19 new jobs.
Pupils of South Hykeham Community Primary School helped the store team to cut the ribbon, declaring it open on September 17.
The school received a donation of £350 from the store to support its activities and contribute to school funds.
Located in Severus Crescent, the new 3,000 sq. ft. store will focus on fresh and healthy food, meal ideas and essentials, include an in-store bakery and provide car parking for customers.
The new Co-operative Food store will also be offering discounts for students who hold a valid NUS extra card.
James Wiswould, Manager of the new Co-operative Food, said: “We are thrilled to have made such a significant investment in North Hykeham, and delighted that we have a fantastic new food store with which to serve the community – it is an exciting time for the whole team.
“The Co-operative is working to transform and grow its convenience business, investing to enhance the in-store experience while lowering the price of everyday essentials.
“We are confident that the store will be a real asset to the community, enabling shoppers to pick up delicious food conveniently and, as a community retailer and a co-operative, it will play its part in local life too.”
