Local jewellery firm John Greed Jewellery is set to open its new store on Lincoln’s High Street (314-315) on July 23. In anticipation of the upcoming opening day, the company has posted a sneak peek of their new store on their website.
The new city centre store, which is part of a wider £1 million business expansion, is situated in the corner unit on Cornhill, which was occupied last December by gift retailer Hawkin’s Bazaar. The well-placed store has also played host to shoe seller Mr. Shoes, and clothing retailer Next. John Greed Jewellery currently employs more than 40 local people, a number which would rise with the opening of the new store.
The new location will act as the firm’s flagship store, with the company keeping their uphill store, which has been open since 1994. The city centre shop will stock more branded jewellery, including the likes of Calvin Klein, Diesel, Storm and Pandora. It will also have a Diamond Ring Bar, added specifically to give customers the opportunity to talk to a specialised team for advise on how to choose an engagement or wedding ring.
John Greed himself has been on site every day helping toward the store’s completion, and added that the new shop has a seductive feel which offers “individuality and personality” when compared to other major jewellery chains.
