Edinburgh Woollen Mill looking to join The Crescent

Edinburgh Woollen Mill could be set to join Hinckley’s Crescent shopping complex.

The homeware and clothes retailer have applied on Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council’s planning permission portal to install two illuminated advertisements, with one of them looking to be a storefront fascia.

A planning permission document went up outside of the store out on 10 March.

According to the planning permission documents, the proposed space they would occupy if they went ahead with the plans would be the former unit for women’s clothing retailer, Select.

This would be the first store in the area to be an independent outlet, instead of being inside of a garden centre.

The property deal is said to be being secured by chartered property surveyor, Harry Ward, of Wards Surveyors based on Station Road.

The most local branch to Hinckley and Nuneaton is located in Dobbies garden centre in Atherstone.

The most local branch to Stoney Stanton, Earl Shilton and the surrounding villages would be inside of Palmers Garden Centre in Enderby.

A spokesperson for Edinburgh Woollen Mill said they are ‘just looking’ at the space in The Crescent.

Hinckley Free Press shall keep you updated with any further details as the story develops.
