Smiggle Store Opening Manager Leon Hindocha said: “The products are for ages between about four and up and can be for everyone.

“We change our designs every week and have new vibrant products coming out every week.

“We have created about seven jobs in Lincoln already and at peak times we will be expanding that as well.

“Everything you can see in the store is brand new and custom made.

“It’s been great feedback everyone has been asking us to come to Lincoln. It’s the first one in Lincolnshire. The closest before now would be Sheffield.

“We’re open Monday to Sunday nine to five.”
