New Asian supermarket moving into old Lincoln Bathstore

The unit was vacant for over a year

A new Asian supermarket will soon move into Lincoln in a unit formerly occupied by Bathstore.

Bathstore had ‘store closing’ signs in the windows of its Lincoln branch on St Mark Street last summer after the company fell into administration, putting over 500 jobs at risk across more than 130 stores.

Homebase secured a deal to acquire Bathstore and rescue it from administration, which reportedly saw it acquire over 40 of the stores and saved more than 150 jobs.

Workers have been seen at the Lincoln site in recent months before posters appeared in the windows this week saying “Asia supermarket coming soon”.
