Customers could soon be getting their shoes and watches repaired in a purpose-built pod at Ely’s Tesco store.
Bosses have applied for planning permission to build a 23 square-metre pod in the supermarket’s car park in Angel Drove.
The pod will be used by Tesco and Timpson Ltd to offer jewellery repairs, watch repairs, shoe repairs, engraving, key cutting and dry cleaning. If approved, the new pod will result in the loss of two car parking spaces.
In a statement to East Cambridgeshire District Council, the applicants said: “Consent is sought for the construction of one retail pod to be situated on an existing paved area approximately 64 metres south-east of the main store entrance.
“Dry cleaning will not be undertaken within the kiosk - items to be cleaned would simply be dropped off and collected at the kiosk.”
