A ‘beautiful and practical clothing’ shop for women is heading to Lincoln this Spring as the latest brand to sign up at the £70 million redevelopment of The Cornhill Quarter.
Seasalt has clothing shops all across England and South Wales, with the new Lincoln store opening in March 2019 in the large unit near to Lakeland and on Sincil Street.
Seasalt will sit alongside recently signed 200 Degrees in phase two of the redevelopment, which is nearing completion. Phase two is delivering a 23,000 sq ft of retail space along Sincil Street, as well as a bright, attractive walkway through to the multi-storey car park.
The shop is already recruiting for new jobs, including part-time supervisors.
A spokesperson for Seasalt said: “We are delighted to be opening a shop in Lincoln. We have wonderful customers in the East Midlands and we’re looking forward to welcoming them to our new shop, which we hope will bring a touch of Cornwall to the beautiful architecture of the city.”
Seasalt was established by brothers Leigh, David and Neil Chadwick after their dad Don passed away. They wanted to create a clothing brand inspired by all the things they love about Cornwall.
The company also supplies to around 400 stockists. Its exclusive collections can be found at John Lewis, Label, Next and selected Fenwick stores.
Popular cocktail bar chain The Botanist, which is coming to the Cornhill in early 2020, will be over ground and first floors located in the third phase of the development, which sits opposite to the completed Corn Exchange building.
Between this building and the Corn Exchange will be Exchange Square, providing a new public space for the city, as well as outdoor seating for the Botanist.
Work has begun on building a boutique cinema and rooftop restaurant with cathedral views in the Cornhill Quarter of Lincoln. It will be the first Everyman Cinema in the city.
The timber frames for the shopfronts and windows along Sincil Street have been handmade locally by Lindum Joinery, in keeping with the original Victorian street scene.
Lincolnshire Co-op’s Chief Executive Ursula Lidbetter said: “We are achieving great momentum with our development, attracting yet another great name to add to the mix of local and national brands.
“It’s another step towards our vision to retain the unique feel of the area and enhance the centre of Lincoln. Seasalt will provide an offer which we don’t currently have in Lincoln, which we hope will attract local residents and visitors from the surrounding area to the city.”
Managing Director at Banks Long & Co Tim Bradford added: “We are continuing at pace on The Cornhill Quarter development, and we are having some fruitful discussions with further brands, and look forward to announcing these in due course.”
