The new store will result in the creation of over 60 jobs and will offer a complete shopping experience for customers who can purchase all their groceries, fresh produce and beer, wines and spirits in one place. The exterior design of this store will be unique to Milnthorpe, exhibiting an extraordinary piece of artwork produced by local sculptor, Katie Edwards.
It will contain fresh food counters, including a butchers, fishmongers, delicatessen, hot food and cheesemongers. Booths is renowned for its artisan quality and sourcing fresh, seasonal produce and its fresh food counters will be pride of place in store. Many shoppers choose Booths for its unrivalled selection of local produce and Booths Milnthorpe will be no different. The new store is perfectly placed to take advantage of suppliers from all of Booths regions (Lancashire, Cumbria and Yorkshire), including products such as Holker salt marsh lamb raised on the Cartmel peninsula and Morecambe Bay potted shrimps.
