Booths to open in Lytham St Annes

UPMARKET supermarket chain Booths is to open a new store in Lytham St Annes in early September, creating 90 jobs.

The 36,000 sq ft outlet will include a café, butchery, fishmonger and deli counters.

Store manager Ian Jacques has 31 years of experience of working at Booths, starting at the age of 14, while still at school. Following several years managing other Booths stores, in 2011 he was appointed manager of Booths in Knutsford, one of its largest stores.

Chairman Edwin Booths said: “Booths is a supermarket retailer like no other—proudly Northern, family run and independent. Our regional roots and relative small size help to forge close relationships with our farmers and producers.

“We’re able to source exceptional food and drink from small scale producers who would normally avoid supplying the supermarkets. 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.”
