Launch date confirmed for new coffee shop at Central England Co-op Boley Park

The launch date has been confirmed for a brand-new coffee shop set to open at Central England Co-op’s £3 million flagship site in Lichfield later this month.

The retailer has teamed up with the Insomnia Coffee Company to bring the fast-growing coffee chain’s first Staffordshire outlet to its Boley Park Food Store and it can now be revealed it will open its doors to the community on Friday, 16 April.

The launch day will see a range of great opening offers for Central England Co-op members and customers, as well as live music to entertain customers outside.

Insomnia is Ireland’s leading independent coffee shop chain where it was founded in 1997 but has been rapidly expanding into the United Kingdom with outlets across the country, including opening at Central England Co-op’s Littleover Food Store last year.

These first look images show the progress of the work to create the modern and stylish coffee shop which will initially offer a takeaway service and outdoor dining, in line with Government guidance, before hopefully opening fully to customers in the summer as restrictions ease.

The coffee shop will be the latest phase of the revamped Boley park development to open after the successful launch of the revitalised food store, new petrol filing station and redesigned car park late last year, with two other units ready to house a gym and fish and chip shop opening this summer to complete the project.

Team Leader at the coffee shop Claire Ball said: “We can’t wait to open the doors to our brand-new coffee shop and to offer the Boley Park community a great place to pick up a refreshment and meet friends and family when we all can safely.

“It will be a high-quality coffee shop, offering 100% Fairtrade coffee and tea, as well as a great selection of sandwiches, cakes and snacks that I’m sure our customers will really love.

“Initially we will be able to offer takeaway, as well as an external seating area with full social distancing and safety measures in place and we look forward to when restrictions are lifted further so customers can enjoy the comfortable and stylish interior the shop will offer.

“So, come on down on Friday, April 16 to check out the new coffee shop and take advantage of some great opening deals, as well as the free entertainment and treats on offer.”

The Insomnia Coffee Company at Boley Park will be open every day from 7am to 7pm.
