Booze 4 Less suddenly no more

Once-popular Carholme Road off-license Booze 4 Less has closed down.

The shop is now completely empty and the owners have not given any notice besides a sign on the door, asking for post to be redirected next door.

Booze 4 Less sold alcohol at low prices as well as food and first appeared to be closed on February 19, when it was not open at its normal opening time.

The shop generally catered to students and also had an online delivery website.

Booze 4 Less’ website and Facebook page are still accessible, but don’t appear to have been updated in several months.

The mystery closure of the off-license is another figure to add to Lincoln’s increasing number of vacant shop premises in the city.

Almost a seventh of all commercial properties in Lincoln are now vacant and figures could continue to soar, according to a new report.

The report by the Local Data Company (LDC) shows that in 2010, Lincoln’s empty shop space rose by 2%, ranking the city 4th worst off in the county.
