Lidl store for Boston and up to 40 jobs
A new Lidl store and up to 40 new jobs are on their way to Boston after the borough council's planning committee yesterday (Tuesday, May 16) unanimously approved the supermarket's application.
The new store will be located off the A52, adjacent to the Tesco superstore and petrol filling station, within close vicinity of Alban Retail Park and Downtown Boston, and will include 166 car parking spaces, including seven dedicated disabled and seven parent and child spaces located close to the store entrance and facilities for 10 bicycles. There will be an in-store bakery.
Proposed opening hours are 7am to 10pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sundays.
Clive Gibbons, economic development manager from Boston Borough Council said: "The approval of an application to build a 'Lidl of the future' store is yet more proof that the borough of Boston is a place to do business. The council, through its economic plan encourages and supports sustainable growth and the creation of new jobs which was clearly reflected in the support of this application. It's great news that Lidl UK chose Boston for this new store format and the creation of 40 new jobs and we are keen to work closely with Lidl UK to see this development and the jobs opportunities to come forward quickly".
