Cooplands is getting bready to return to Lincoln High Street as soon as next month after taking over a former newsagents.
As previously reported, MSR newsagents closed down its store at 159-160 High Street suddenly after serving the city for 10 years in Summer 2018.
Work is currently underway to fit out the store.
A spokesperson for Cooplands told The Lincolnite that an exact opening date hasn’t been set, but it is hoping to open in September 2019 depending on recruitment.
Posters advertising jobs – Supervisor, Sales Assistants and Sandwich Preparation – are currently on display on the boarded up area outside the store.
Lincolnshire Co-op is the shop’s landlord.
The bakery chain already has three shops in Lincoln at the Birchwood Shopping Centre, Carlton Centre and on Woodhall Drive.
