Waitrose to open new Leicestershire store

Waitrose has reached an agreement with Booker Retail Partners to acquire its shop in Mountsorrel in Leicestershire.

The new store will become the sixth Waitrose shop in Leicestershire and the first branch to open in the county since 2012.

The Budgens staff employed at the branch will transfer to Waitrose and a further 40 jobs will be created as part of the multi-million pound investment planned for the store. Recruitment is expected to start in February.

The Mountsorrel branch will continue to trade until the end of February. It will then be handed over to Waitrose in late March with the new shop opening in late spring 2016.

Nigel Keen, director of development at Waitrose, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to bring the Waitrose brand to Mountsorrel and we cannot wait to welcome our new customers in the spring. We look forward to becoming part of the community and making a positive contribution to the area for many years to come.”
