It closed for a total of three days, starting on Saturday (17 July) through to Tuesday (20 July), citing ‘operational issues’ as the reason behind the closure, whilst the town centre’s Castle Street branch remained open and trading.

At the time, no further public explanation was offered, and regulars were notified through the branch’s Facebook page, and on a handwritten sign which was placed on the front door.

Busy baristas started serving up drinks once again yesterday morning (21 July), when they were given the ‘green light’ to re-open by the coffee chain.

Now, a Costa spokesperson has explained what the ‘behind the scenes’ issue was that caused the closure to take place.

They explained: “Our Costa Coffee store at The Crescent, Hinckley was temporarily closed due to a number of team members having to self-isolate after being contacted by NHS Test and Trace.

“We’re pleased to say that the store re-opened on Wednesday 21st July.

“We apologise for any inconvenience the store closure may have caused.”
