Apple franchise store to open in Lincoln Waterside Shopping Centre

Gadget shop: An Apple franchise operated by Stormfront will open in the Waterside mall in December.

Apple franchise Stormfront will open a store in the Waterside Shopping Centre in Lincoln on December 17.

The store will be situated at the upper floor of the mall, in the 3,360 sq ft unit formerly occupied by Oasis.

Stormfront will sell and service Apple’s line of iPhones, iPads and iPods, as well as Mac laptops and computers, and third-party accessories.

Up until now people wanting to visit an Apple retail store would have to travel to Leicester or Meadowhall in Sheffield.

Stormfront Retail Ltd has 14 other Apple outlets across the UK, including York, Dundee, Salisbury and Wimbledon.

“The arrival of the franchise in the Waterside Shopping Centre is fantastic news,” said Centre Manager Roy Greening.

“The Apple brand is iconic and is just the sort of outlet that we want to see in our malls. Stormfront is the premium UK franchisee and we are delighted to introduce it to Lincoln.

“It is certainly a testimony to Lincoln’s growing stature that a brand such as Apple can see the benefits of opening a store in the city.”

A further four retailers opened stores in the Waterside mall in the run up to Christmas in the last month: Hawkin’s Bazaar, Past Times, L’Amour Hair & Beauty and the Puzzle Store.
