Coningsby filling station £990k revamp complete

A Lincolnshire Co-op food store and petrol station near Coningsby will open next weekend after a £990,000 revamp of the site.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Gibbet Nook Food Store and Filling Station, which is on the junction of the A153 and B1192 near Coningsby, will unveil its new look after demolition works.

The old kiosk stayed open while the new food store was being built, but this will now be demolished so the space can be reused.

The site will close from Monday, August 20 and the new store is expected to open its doors to customers at 7am on Saturday, August 25.

The development includes improvements to the forecourt and a new purpose-built food store on the site, which will create eight new jobs.

There will also be 14 new car parking spaces for shoppers to use including two disabled parking spaces.

Food Regional Manager Richard Robinson said: “It’s been a long programme of work but we’re really happy with the result, and I hope our customers and members will be just as impressed.

“The forecourt looks much more spacious and by replacing the kiosk with a more modern food store there’s now plenty of facilities to help customers fuel their busy lives as well as their vehicles, from Costa Coffee and food on the go to dinner options and chilled drinks for later.

“By shopping as members with their dividend card they’ll be supporting good causes too through our Community Champions scheme.”

Final touches to the forecourt, including an extra fuel pump in place of the old kiosk, will be added in September.
