2016 saw the opening of our brand new high street branch in Louth, Lincolnshire, and it was certainly another busy year for Crofts, with the refurbished flagship branch in Cleethorpes celebrating its tenth anniversary, coinciding with the first anniversary of the opening of Crofts high street branch in Immingham. Both branches have experienced a great year in both sales and lettings - leading to an additional nine members of staff being added to the ranks to meet increased demand - and to uphold Crofts' reputation for excellent customer service. The opening of the new Louth office in the busy Market Place sees Crofts' first foray into more rural Lincolnshire, with house-building in this ever-popular market town set to rise again this year. Louth is a popular area for young families, with highly-regarded schools and amenities - and was recently named 'Britain's Favourite Market Town' by the BBC's Countryfile. With a population of just over 16,000, the market town of Louth itself has lots to offer to families of all ages, from its elegant Victorian architecture and abundance of independent shops to nearby attractions such as Rushmoor Country Park, Cadwell Park racing circuit, as well as the rolling Lincolnshire Wolds on its doorstep.
Louth has fought hard to retain an independent retail focus, with over 70% of high street shops being privately owned. As a local, independent business Crofts is proud to be among this number, and looks forward to becoming part of - and supporting - the local community into the future. Crofts' new Louth office will have all the functionality of their existing branches, with a smart refurbishment and external touchscreen technology - meaning all three Crofts’ branches are 'open' 24 hours a day for enquiries and bookings.
