Newly-filed planning documents registered with Hinckley and Bosworth borough council late last month reveals that the former Premier Mobility shop on Coventry Road is in the process of being transformed into a One Stop convenience store.

The recent documentation filed by planning applicant Innovate Signs simply seeks out permission to install ‘advertisement signs and fascia’ to the former mobility shop.

CGI mock-up of the signage shows that it would trade every day from 7am to 10pm.

On-site parking would be created for shoppers, though they could only park there for a maximum of 30 minutes. There would also be a designated parking area for staff.

The shop will sell a variety of items, including fresh fruit and vegetables, quality meals and ready meals, bread and pastries, frozen food, cupboard fillers, snacks and treats, and beers and wines.

In fact, this is not the only newest One Stop branch which is set to open in town soon.

As we reported last month, another branch is currently in the process of opening on Rugby Road in the former Hinckley Fireplaces showroom, near the council offices.

This means the soon-to-open new shops are a three minutes drive from each other.

The chain already have a long-established presence on Stoke Road in Hollycroft, which set up shop inside of the former Costcutter store some time between 2009 and 2011.
