Lincolnshire Co-op signs up Doughnotts to The Cornhill Quarter
Lincolnshire Co-op has signed up Doughnotts for its £70 million redevelopment of The Cornhill Quarter in Lincoln.
The brand will take 1,600 square feet of space for what will be its fourth branch in the UK.
Doughnotts founders Wade Smith and Megan Scadden said: “Lincoln is an incredible city with a massive history. We are itching to open and add something new to Lincoln and be the first Doughnut company here.”
énergie Fitness has also recently signed up for the scheme which is set to open towards the end of the summer.
Ursula Lidbetter, Lincolnshire Co-op’s chief executive, said: “Doughnotts is a great new name to announce for The Cornhill Quarter and we are pleased the handmade doughnut brand has chosen Lincoln as it expands, which is testament to the success of this new destination. The Cornhill Quarter development is moving at pace, having announced more new brands for the scheme in the past few months including énergie Fitness and Seasalt.”
The Cornhill Quarter scheme is rejuvenating a significant area of Lincoln’s retail district. The first phase of the scheme, The Corn Exchange building, was restored and completed in 2017. The development is also home to brands such as Cosy Club, Moss Bros, Flying Tiger Copenhagen, Thomas Cook and Lakeland.
Tim Bradford, managing director at Banks Long & Co, said: “The Cornhill Quarter continues to secure an array quality brands in line with our vision for a truly mixed use scheme. Doughnotts and énergie Fitness both bring a valuable offer to The Cornhill Quarter and the city centre of Lincoln. We are having some good discussions with other quality retail and leisure brands, and look forward to sharing more news on these as we move forward with the scheme.”
