For the record: New HMV store opens in Lincoln Cornhill Quarter

HMV has opened a new store in the Cornhill Quarter with a much bigger vinyl record collection after closing on the High Street.

The new shop opened on Friday, January 24 in place of BrightHouse next to Heron Foods and the upcoming Everyman Cinema at 16 Cornhill.

It is very similar to the old HMV store which closed on the High Street on January 12, but it is now in a brand new, much brighter, unit.

Laurence Price, head of retail at HMV, said previously: “All staff will be moving across to the new store and are looking forward to a refreshed unit.

“It will give us the chance to update our offer and improve on our already expanded vinyl range.

“The Cornhill Quarter is a developing part of the city and we hope to be able to put our stamp on it.”

The Cornhill Quarter is a £70 million redevelopment project by Lincolnshire Co-op alongside the City of Lincoln Council.

Meanwhile, the last surviving independent shops in the area have blamed a drop in footfall and increasing costs for dwindling local businesses in the Cornhill Quarter.
