Lincoln Office Outlet closing next month

Office Outlet has confirmed that its Tritton Road store will close next month as shops continue to disappear from The Tritton Road area.

The store will close its doors at the Tritton Retail Park for the final time on August 26 2018 and staff have been informed, the stationery outlet said.

A spokesperson for Office Outlet told The Lincolnite in a statement: “We can confirm that we are closing our Tritton Road store, Tritton Retail Park in Lincoln on August 26 2018.

“Our highly valued colleagues who are affected by the store closure have been suitably informed and we are working closely with them in regards to new roles. We would like to apologise to our customers for the inconvenience caused.”

Topps Tiles closed last month on June 30, while posters at The Lidl Outlet at the nearby St Marks shopping centre confirmed its store would be closing on Sunday, July 29 at 4pm.

As previously reported, Lincoln councillors gave outline planning permission to a £150 million redevelopment of St Marks by Standard Life Investments.

Plans include leisure and retail spaces, student accommodation, a hotel and a car park.

Toys R Us, Homebase and Maplin are among the stores to have already gone from the St Marks retail park.
