Mason Moore | Hinckley Reporter | 23 July 2020
H. SAMUEL, who had a location on Castle Street in Hinckley town centre, have closed their doors for good.
Whilst many retailers have reopened their doors in Hinckley’s high street following the green light from the Government, albeit with social distancing guidelines and safety measures in place, H. Samuel on Castle Street won’t be one of them reopening.
H. Samuel, owned by Signet Group, still have a location left based on Market Place in Nuneaton town centre, just a 13-minute drive away.
Whilst Hinckley no longer houses H. Samuel, there still a few alternatives left in the town, including: Goldust Jewellers in Market Place in Hinckley town centre and F. Hinds on Castle Street opposite the Britannia Centre.
A closure notice was first spotted on the shutters back on 28 May explaining that they have closed reading “Sorry we have missed you. This store has closed.
“If you had an order, repair or deposit with us, we’ll be in touch. For any other queries, please contact our customer services team at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The property closure was officially confirmed on 22 July after Harry Ward of Station Road’s chartered surveyors, Wards, announced on Facebook that the ‘prime retail unit’ is up for grabs.
Enquiries about the ex-jewellers’ space can be made by emailing Harry Ward on email@example.com or by calling 01455 251771 for the full details.
