Ninety jobs have been created as Booths prepares to open its newest Lancashire store.
The Preston-headquartered supermarket chain is opening its new Lytham St Annes store on September 9.
The new store is over 36,000 square feet nd will feature a café, butchery, fishmonger and state of the art deli counters.
Ian Jacques has been appointed as the new store manager.
He has 31 years of experience of working at Booths.
Ian started working at Booths Fulwood at the age of 14, while still at school—with the ambition of joining the management trainee programme.
Following several years managing other Booths stores, in 2011 he was appointed manager of Booths in Knutsford, Cheshire, one of Booths’ largest stores.
“My team and I cannot wait for the new store to open,” said Ian.
“Lancashire producers are making and growing some of the finest food Britain has to offer, and our store is looking fantastic.
“I think customers will be excited about our new offer. What sets Booth apart is our close link to producers and exceptional produce.”
The vast majority of Booths’ fresh food is sourced locally due to its commitment to working with suppliers in the four counties in which it operates its 30-plus stores: Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumbria and Yorkshire.
Chairman Edwin Booth said: “Booths is a supermarket retailer like no other—proudly Northern, family run and independent.
“We’re committed to giving our producers a fair price and offering our shoppers great food and we’re very excited to open in St Annes.”
