Closing date set for Lincoln Dorothy Perkins and Burton

Closing day set: Lincoln’s Dorothy Perkins and Burton store will be closing its doors for good.

The Dorothy Perkins and Burton store on Lincoln High Street will be closing down on April 22, the clothing brand has confirmed.

As previously reported the store was outlined for closure back in February with more than 20 jobs put at risk.

Both Dorothy Perkins and Burton are a part of the Arcadia Group. The company also previously owned BHS, which had around 160 stores across the county, including two stores in Lincoln, before it went into liquidation.

The nearest Dorothy Perkins store will be inside the Debenhams at St. Marks Shopping Centre or in Newark on Stodman Street. The nearest Burton store will be in East Retford, Nottinghamshire or at Oldrids Department Store in Gainsborough.
