The cooking, bakery and cleaning retailer will open its new Lincoln store after a relocation and £400,000 Sincil Street shop refurbishment.

It will move from its current St Marks address into the Cornhill Quarter, which is at phase two of a £70 million redevelopment.

The shop officially opens on Saturday.

Thor’s tipi bar is not only returning to Lincoln as a festive delight this year, but it has also signed a three-year deal to become an annual favourite in the city.

It will open again on Sincil Street from this Friday until Monday, December 31 and entry is free. It will be open from 10am-10pm Sundays to Thursdays and 10-am-11pm Fridays and Saturdays, but it will be closed on Christmas Day.

Street food vendor The Cheese Cave will be making its debut at Thor’s with its vintage trailer this year, serving up some delicious grilled cheese street food.

Office Outlet will officially open its new store on Friday after relocating into Valentine Retail Park in the old Tile Giant unit next to Farmfoods.

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 at the Tritton Retail Park was up and a planned relocation deal had fallen through, but jobs were saved when the business secured its new unit.

Escape Lincoln

The Magic Emporium, Sherlock: The Initiation and Contagion will be available for players to try – for more information on the games click here.

Adult entry is priced at £20 with a cost of £15 for under-16s.
