Opportunity knocks for independent business owners who would love to move into Lincoln’s Cornhill Quarter, which is being transformed by a £70 million regeneration scheme.

The Cornhill Quarter, with its award-winning Corn Exchange, is undergoing an amazing renaissance. Developer, Lincolnshire Co-op, is now making two refurbished shops available. 21 and 23 Sincil Street are ready for occupation by independent businesses who are keen to become part of this city centre success story.

This news comes hot on the heels of Lincolnshire Co-op proudly launching its new food store at the corner of Sincil Street and Norman Street. Combined with the city’s exciting Everyman Cinema and Botanist restaurant – both of which are due to open in Spring 2020 – moving a step closer to completion.

Managing Director of Banks Long & Co, Tim Bradford said: “The revitalised Cornhill Quarter has caught the imagination of many national operators and acted as a magnet for new brands, but it was always the plan to include space for independent enterprises within the scheme.

“I am delighted to announce that two units tailored to the needs of those businesses are now available. The intention is to make more available shortly.”

21 Sincil Street extends to 401 sq ft, and 23 Sincil Street provides a larger unit of 1,005 sq ft including the upper parts.

They are close to the new Lincolnshire Co-op store, Lakeland, Seasalt, 200 Degrees, Moss Bros., Flying Tiger Copenhagen and Cosy Club restaurant. Conveniently also located within easy walking distance to the city’s railway station, 1,000-space Central Car Park and the High Street.

The units are being jointly marketed by Banks Long & Co and national retail agents, KLM Retail.

Lincolnshire Co-op Chief Executive Ursula Lidbetter said: “It has always been our main aim to ensure we have the right mix of national and local outlets in The Cornhill Quarter scheme.

“Sincil Street already has many of our fantastic independent traders, along with some new names like 200 Degrees and Lakeland. We feel the two refurbished shops will be great opportunity for an independent retailers business to flourish.”
