A NATIONAL card retailer have relocated to a new premises in Hinckley town centre.
Greeting card giant Card Factory have permanently closed their doors to their outlet in the Britannia Shopping Centre, where they have had a presence for many years.
But, this is because they have “moved” and quietly opened their doors at a brand new location in Castle Street – inside of the former Thorntons chocolate shop near EE.
A blue and yellow poster has been placed in the window of their old store, directing customers to the new shop. It reads: “We have moved. Your new Card Factory store is just a few steps away… 15 Castle Street, Hinckley, in between EE and Bodycare.”
At the time of the article being published back then (Friday, 9 September), it was unknown what would happen to their store in the Britannia Centre.
It has taken the retailer two months to complete the re-location.
A new coffee shop named The Wild Lotus are hoping to open soon on Castle Street – and have recently been hiring part-time staff ahead of the opening.
On nearby Regent Street, a new waffle shop named Waffles Emporium is opening inside of a former antiques, craft and gift shop.
And, on Market Place, a new real ale bar and coffee house named ‘The Clarence’ plans to open this weekend.
