Independent retailers flock to Red Lion Yard
Maison White, a boutique specialising in gifts, homewares and interior design, has opened in a 538 sq ft store in the oldest part of Red Lion Yard close to the Grade II listed Red Lion Hotel.
Meanwhile, jewellery retailer Splash of Ice has opened a 169 sq ft shop offering handmade designer silver jewellery from across the world as well as bespoke jewellery design service.
Completed in July this year, the refurbishment works have created a new boutique shopping and café quarter in the historic yard which links the town’s High Street with the Lion Walk Shopping Centre.
Both Lion Walk and Red Lion Yard are owned by Lion Walk Property and asset managed by Sovereign Land.
Ruth Duffield of Sovereign Land, said: “The transformation of Red Lion Yard into a stylish new boutique and café quarter has reinforced Lion Walk as the prime shopping pitch in Colchester. It’s the combination of the independent stores and the well known retailer brands at Lion Walk and Red Lion Yard which offer customers a complete and exciting shopping experience.”
