New Lincoln Lakeland cooking up a storm

Cooking, bakery and cleaning retailer Lakeland is ready to open its doors on Saturday and The Lincolnite took a tour behind the scenes.

As previously reported, Lakeland relocated from its old address in St Marks, where it was based for around 20 years, after a £400,000 Sincil Street shop refurbishment.

The new shop will see Lakeland bringing their very latest design of retail space to Lincoln. It will officially open on Saturday, November 10 in time to showcase its full Christmas range.

Store manager at Lakeland Lincoln Mandy Clarkson previously 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.”

Lakeland’s Retail Director Paul Walkden 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.

“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.”
