Plans for new Lincoln Savers store

Discount toiletries chain Savers has set its sights on a new Lincoln shop unit.

It would be a return to the city for the brand, which closed its only shop in 2017.

A planning application was lodged with the City of Lincoln Council to open a new shop in the former a Co-op Bank at 16 Saltergate.

The application is for a new glazed shopfront and entrance doors. It also includes a request for a new fascia and projecting sign.

It is understood the new store could open in March 2019, but this has yet to be confirmed.

Plans were previously approved by the city council last summer for the chain to open on St Benedicts Square, but there was no progress made past this stage.

The health and beauty chain was formerly located on the Cornhill where it sold products such as deodorant, shower gel, perfume and make-up. In July 2017 the store closed after its lease expired.

The company noted at the time that it had intentions to open a new store in the future.
