Apple franchise to open at Lincoln's Waterside
Apple, the iconic technology brand, is to have a presence at the Lincoln¬ís Waterside Shopping Centre as a part of a string of new lettings in the centre.
Waterside’s owner, Capital & Regional, has secured what will be the first Apple franchise for Lincoln. The store will be operated by Stormfront Retail which currently runs 14 Apple outlets across the UK. The 3,360 sq ft store is due to open on 17 December.
Capital & Regional purchased The Waterside Shopping Centre from clients of PRUPIM in February 2011. The scheme is currently anchored by Primark, New Look and Topshop.
The Apple letting is a significant deal for Capital & Regional as it looks to reposition the tenant mix and profile of the centre within Lincoln city centre.
Andrew Haughey, retail asset manager at Capital & Regional, commented: "The Apple brand is iconic and a major retail magnet wherever it trades. Stormfront is the premium UK franchisee and we are delighted to introduce it to Lincoln.
"This letting, alongside a line of other new names which have recently taken space in the centre, demonstrates how we are successfully applying our retail management skills to reposition The Waterside Shopping Centre as the dominant fashion and lifestyle destination within Lincoln.
"We will be making further exciting announcements soon on our future plans for the centre."
