Three popular national retailers will move into newly completed shopping units in uphill Lincoln.
B&M Bargains, JYSK and Sue Ryder have taken possession of their new homes on the Deacon Road Retail Park.
The shops will open to the public in the coming weeks, once each business has completed its fit out.
Units have been built on the former Allied Bakeries site which had been left derelict since its demolition over a decade ago. They were built by North Hykeham-based construction company Lindum.
Lindum director Stuart Mitchell said he was pleased to see the site successfully regenerated.
“This project was the result of a joint venture between us and Castle Square Developments, whose extensive expertise in retail investment and development complements the skills we have as builders.
“The new units have been built by Lindum Construction, with timber shop fronts made by Lindum Joinery and roofing and cladding installed by Lindum-owned specialists KGM.”
As previously revealed, Danish-owned furniture brand JYSK is relocating from its site at St Marks Shopping Centre to the new premises. It said the outlet would be a ‘Concept 3.0 store’, complete with room lay outs.
Meanwhile, B&M is adding to its existing presence in Lincoln by taking a 22,000 sq ft unit, combined with a further 7,500 sq ft outdoor area for a garden centre. Charity chain Sue Ryder will take the other 5,000 sq ft unit.
The development was marketed by Lincoln-based agents Banks Long and Co. Associate Director Lewis Cove said: ‘It is fantastic to see Deacon Road Retail Park completed. It looks good and is ready for the well-established national retailers to take occupation.”
