This story is over

A former Brantano store in Lincoln has been taken over by Pavers after the shoe retailer went into administration earlier this year.

Pavers has taken over four Brantano stores in the country, including Bournemouth, Lincoln, Newport on the Isle of Wight, and Newton Abbot in Devon.

The Brantano brand was taken over by administrators PriceWaterhouseCooper (PwC) in March.

A total of 45 jobs were saved across the four Lincolnshire stores after the takeover.

The 11 members of staff at the Carlton Centre site in Lincoln will be retained by Pavers.

The Lincoln Pavers store will open on Saturday, May 27.

Pavers now have five stores in Great Lincolnshire, with two in Lincoln, and others in Cleethorpes, Spalding and Grantham.

Stuart Paver, managing director, Pavers, said: “We have recently made it clear that Pavers is embarking on a period of strategically planned and focused growth.

“This opportunity fitted perfectly into our expansion plans, allowing us to move into a select number of areas within the UK where we are currently under represented.

“We expect to rebrand these stores and be trading within 6-8 weeks, bringing comfortable, stylish, and good-value footwear to everyone locally.”
