Jack Wills leaves Lincoln without a goodbye

Textbook definition of ghosting

Jack Wills has closed down its Lincoln High Street store without any notice after administration headaches blighted the company.

The branch has become the next Lincoln High Street victim of the coronavirus pandemic, following Laura Ashley and Monsoon Accessorize.

All the staff at the store were made redundant, the former manager said.

The former store manager left this comment on The Lincolnite’s story.

While the notices in the shop window do still say “temporary closure”, the sign has been painted over and the store has been taken off the locator map on Jack Wills’ website.

It is believed to be one of 50 stores to close across the country since the fashion brand was bought out of administration by Frasers Group in August 2019.

This now means that just one Jack Wills store is left in Lincolnshire, at the Springfields Outlet Centre in Spalding.

The Lincolnite approached both Jack Wills and Frasers Group for a response, but did not receive a reply by the time of publication.
