Boston filling station to get £400k facelift

Over £400,000 worth of works to transform a food store and filling station in Boston will take place next month.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Eastwood Road Food Store and Filling Station will undergo a programme of work worth £430,000 and will see the food store refurbished and extra services added including an instore bakery, more chilled beers and wine, hot food to go and a wider range of chilled food.

The forecourt will be given a refresh, the fuel pumps replaced and underground works will take place in another phase of work.

This means the forecourt is closed this week and is due to reopen again on Friday, December 7.

The food store will remain open while all the improvements take place, so customers can still pop in for their shopping as and when they need.

Lincolnshire Co-op Store Development Projects Manager Chris Glover said: “Our Eastwood Road Food Store and Filling Station is a busy outlet used by lots of people each day, so we’re pleased to be investing in it for our customers and the store team.

“It’s a substantial programme of work and unfortunately this does mean the forecourt will have to close. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and we’ll be working hard to ensure it’s not shut for longer than it needs to be.

“Customers will be able to pop in and use the food store while it’s being refurbished, and we hope our customers will be impressed with the site’s new look.

“Our Gibbet Nook Food Store and Filling Station near Coningsby, which was also recently refurbished in a major programme of work, is also within reach by car and ready to serve customers.”

Eastwood Road Food Store and Filling Station Store Manager Paul Cartwright said: “The team are really excited about the refurbishment and can’t wait to share the final result with everyone once the work’s all complete.”
