Opening date set for new Office Outlet

There will be competitions and offers soon

The opening date has been set as Office Outlet prepares to relocate into Valentine Retail Park in Lincoln next month.

As previously reported, staff at the former store at the Tritton Retail Park were put at risk of redundancy back in July as the lease of the old unit was up and a planned relocation deal had fallen through, with staff travelling the region and working in other stores.

The old store closed its doors for the final time on August 26, but jobs were saved when the business secured a new unit.

The new store will have its grand opening in the old Tile Giant unit next to Farmfoods at the Valentine Retail Park on November 9.

Building work is currently underway and the Office Outlet team will be on site merchandising from November 4 ready for the grand opening.

Deputy Retail Sales Director Simon Cowden said: “We’re happy to announce that the Lincoln branch of Office Outlet will be re-opening on November 9 with a brand new store.

“We’re really pleased to have the opportunity to stay in Lincoln and to keep giving our customers across Lincolnshire great deals on their office, business and printing needs.”
