Hinckley is a vibrant market town centre with a strong local heritage and which serves its resident catchment area (55,000+), local businesses and many visitors. It benefits from a greater number of independent local and specialist retailers than most towns, a very active programme of footfall enhancing town centre events throughout the year and a proactive, committed, and resourced approach to maintaining its value and quality to those it serves.
The highly proactive Town Centre Partnership (comprising the borough council, Hinckley business improvement district BID, retailers, Services, County Council and our voluntary sector friends) works very hard to keep Hinckley ahead - and uses its own highly accurate data on footfall, vacancies and activity to help determine where to focus its efforts and resources.Destination Hinckley Brochure (PDF)
Hinckley has fared better than larger town and city centres which have become reliant on national multiple retailer representation. This is one of the many unique selling propositions that Hinckley town centre enjoys, and proven with two long-standing major independent stores moving from Leicester city centre into Hinckley. Trading is buoyant, investment continues and we strongly believe Hinckley town centre is the destination of choice.
Hinckley town centre encompasses over 400 businesses of all types and sizes. Our Town Centre Partnership offers the opportunity to work collectively together for the benefit of the town centre and in turn, help individual businesses. If you are looking to establish a business in Hinckley, please contact us. We work with all agencies and can help smooth your path, including planning, rates, premises, marketing, PR, footfall, events and much, much more. The partnership's number one aim is to ensure everyone has a fulfilling and enjoyable experience, and through its working arm, Hinckley (BID) pro-actively supports, develops and hosts a wide range of events and professional activities.Destination Hinckley Brochure (PDF)
