Opening date set for new Lakeland Lincoln Cornhill store

Lakeland has confirmed it will open its new Lincoln store in November after a relocation and £400,000 Sincil Street shop refurbishment.

The cooking, bakery and cleaning retailer will move from its current St Marks address into the Cornhill Quarter, which is at phase two of a £70 million redevelopment.

Lakeland plans to be open by November 10, in time to showcase its full Christmas range.

Mandy Clarkson, store manager at Lakeland Lincoln said: “We are absolutely thrilled that all colleagues from our St Marks store will be moving with us to the centre of town, meaning the full team with all their Lakeland knowledge and expertise will be in our lovely new store.”

Investing over £400,000 in the creation of the new store, Lakeland will be bringing their very latest design of retail space to Lincoln, with plans to be open by mid-November in time to showcase their full Christmas range.

Lakeland’s move to the Cornhill is set for late 2018.

Paul Walkden, Lakeland’s Retail Director, added: “After a prosperous 20 years in the historic St Marks Old Station Building, we are delighted to take this opportunity to invest in a new store in the centre of town.

“We see this as a fantastic opportunity for us to move to the new Cornhill Quarter, which is proving to be a great new hub for the city centre.

“We are exceptionally proud of our store team who are working tirelessly to ensure the transition between stores is as seamless as possible for our customers.

“Lakeland would like to thank our loyal customers in Lincoln for their long-standing and continued support – We are very much looking forward to welcoming them to our new and improved store in the city.”
