Cleethorpes-based Holidays By Design has expanded by opening a second store, in Brigg, Lincolnshire.
The agency – a member of Co-op Travel Consortium, part of The Midcounties Co-operative – has opened in Brigg Garden Centre, which has a high footfall of “time-rich and financially comfortable” visitors.
Open seven days a week, the new shop has created six local jobs and an opportunity for an apprentice.
The first branch opened in 2017 with a team of five which quickly increased to 11.
Hayley Markham, manager at Holidays By Design in Brigg, said: “Times have been tough in travel, but we are so excited and proud to have opened a second branch of Holidays by Design.
“We’re all feeling positive and are pleased to say that bookings have been even better than expected.
“We’ve used social media to build interest and share some fantastic deals pre-opening.
“Our store in Brigg will help build on the excellent reputation established by the branch in Cleethorpes.
“We want to be an integral part of the community, and work with local residents on charity and community projects.”
Alison Holmes, head of Co-op Travel Consortium, which has 140+ members, added: “The location of the branch is carefully considered, the branch design and colleague uniforms look fantastic, and I know the team is raring to go.
“This summer continues to be a really challenging time for our members, as it is for the whole industry, so to have good news to share about a member expanding is a welcome boost.”
