The store closed in 2011 after the company went into administration, leaving residents without a food shop.
Chief Executive of Lincolnshire Co-op Ursula Lidbetter said: "We're delighted to be extending our services by opening our new store in Tattershall.
"We've got loyal members and customers who use our nearby outlets and we know there are lots of other people out there who will appreciate the convenience of having another Lincolnshire Co-op store in the area.
"We're also pleased to be bringing an empty site in the village back into economic use."
The 6,500 square foot store, will sell a wide range of goods including fresh fruit and vegetables, newspapers and chilled, frozen and tinned groceries.
It will also feature a deli counter and will sell Lincolnshire Quality assured meat, born and reared in the county.
Products from Lincolnshire Co-op's Love Local range will be on offer, including plum bread and tea loaf from Horncastle's Myers Bakery, and ice cream made by Dennetts in Spilsby.
Councillor Gill Shaw, chairman of Tattershall with Thorpe Parish Council, said: "Since Haldanes closed, the post office has fulfilled the gap left by providing some basic grocery and frozen food items for those who can't get elsewhere.
"The new Co-op should bring more people to the Market Place, bringing some life back here again."
