The new Insomnia Coffee Company store

The ribbon has been cut on a new coffee shop in Lichfield.

Irish chain Insomnia Coffee Company has opened the outlet as part of a £3million redevelopment of the Central England Co-op site in Boley Park.

The new outlet is currently only offering takeaway and outdoor service due to coronavirus restrictions, but is hoping for a full opening in the summer.

The coffee shop’s team leader, Claire Ball, said:

The team from Insomnia Coffee Company in the new outlet

“We are thrilled to have finally opened our doors and we would like to thank the community and all the food store’s customers and members for their patience – I hope they agree with us that it was definitely worth the wait.

“I am proud to be leading a great team here and to be able to offer the Boley Park community a modern and stylish meeting place to have a delicious Fairtrade tea or coffee and a bite to eat with friends and family.

“We have already had some lovely feedback and hope the coffee shop will become a real hive of activity for the community once restrictions ease.”

The redevelopment of the site has already seen a new petrol station and redesigned car park, as well as a revamp of the food store.

A gym and a fish and chip shop are also due to open this summer as part of the project.

The Insomnia Coffee Company outlet is open daily from 7am to 7pm.

  1. Another useless shop. Coffee and candles. They are the only things you can buy in lichfield. Weakest Town centre out there.

  2. Dan, not sure if you actually know were this new Coffee shop is, but it is approx 1+ miles from City Centre, in Boley Park, will you be saying the same when the Fish & Chip shop opens shortly!!!!

  3. Good to have this in Boley Park as there is no other coffee shop in the neighbourhood. Also brings much needed jobs to Lichfield at a time when they are needed.
