The sign was spotted on Thursday, 12 May, above the permanently closed Age UK branch directly next to Model Collect Create (MCC), located on Upper Castle Street.

The unit was last home to one of Age UK’s ‘national’ charity shops – and not a local branch.

It quietly closed on 14 August, with notices going up on the day, stating that “no donations are to be made” as it had “permanently closed” its doors for good.

At the time of publication (Sunday, 15 May), no plans have yet made public knowledge for what the future of the space will be.

“Under offer” signs are placed on premises when an offer has been accepted but the contracts have not yet been exchanged.

The property is being managed by Wards, a Hinckley-based chartered surveyors and letting agents.

Meanwhile in Castle Street, a new coffeehouse named The Wild Lotus have revealed their plans to set up shop. They made this known one week and six days ago, through posters on their windows.

In mid-April, a charity shop named Sense opened their new shop, housed inside of the former Dorothy Perkins womenswear store.

And, on the nearby Regent Street, an independent bakers named Addylline have revealed that they are in the process of converting a former nightclub into a bakery.
