Lincoln Seasalt store now open

Cornish clothing shop Seasalt welcomed its first Lincoln customers at the weekend.

Seasalt opened in the Cornhill Quarter in Unit 31 near to Lakeland at 9am on Saturday, March 23 after becoming one of the latest brands in the £70million redevelopment of the area.

Seasalt offered the first customer in the queue – Helen Evans – the chance to officially open the new shop by cutting the ribbon. This lucky shopper was also given a £100 Seasalt gift card to spend after queuing from 6am.

Queues of people waited to get inside on what was a busy first weekend for the shop – it was their record sales for any of their store openings.

Shanty band The Chorus Crew attended the opening to entertain customers and passers-by with traditional songs. There were also planned activities throughout the day.

Talented fashion illustrator duo Buttercrumble were in-store to sketch complimentary portraits of customers.

Customers also received a complimentary Jute Shopper bag with their first purchase (whilst stocks last). The first 30 people in the queue were given a special Seasalt gift bag. Seasalt also served cupcakes with Cornish apple juice.

Seasalt has clothing shops all across England and South Wales. It 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 loved about Cornwall.
