New Lincoln Boots opening in spring

A new Boots pharmacy and cosmetics store will move into its new bigger location on the High Street next spring.

Signs in the window of the new store, located in the unit formerly occupied by BHS, confirmed it will open in spring 2019. The sign also says “Can’t wait for us to open? Why not order online and collect at your nearest store”.

As previously reported, the current High Street Boots store will move from its current location across the road to the unit, which has been empty since the collapse of British Home Stores in August 2016.

Plans were previously submitted to the City of Lincoln Council showing designs for new shop fronts on both the High Street and St Benedict’s Square entrances of the shop.

It was on the market as two separate units – 3,741 square foot to let at £270,000 and 4,330 square foot at £290,000 per annum.
