In 2009 Tesco bought part of the H.A.T Reindeer Close industrial estate, off West Street, in Horncastle to create a replacement store for the town about twice the size of the current store.

In July Lincolnshire County Council expressed serious concerns over safety and traffic congestion recommending that the application is refused.
