Located on the Boston Shopping Park off Horncastle Road, mint is a new concept in supermarkets, offering a British aesthetic and high-quality branded products at an affordable price.

David Lambert, Operations Manager at mint, said: “We had a very productive and really enjoyable recruitment day.

“Forty-four people came along on the day and we’ve also had nearly 100 CVs emailed to us.

“We’re delighted with this response from the residents of Boston as we believe our workforce can reflect the cultural make-up of the area.”

Boston’s Mayor Elect, Councillor Bernard Rush, will officially declare mint open at 12pm on Saturday, May 27.
