The Lexicon is delighted to welcome two new signings to the town centre.

The first, independent retailer, FourState, will move into The Avenue, in the unit previously occupied by Sea Salt. It is anticipated that the new store will open its doors towards the end of October.

FourState, offers a wide range of eco-friendly products, putting the planet first, at the forefront of everything it does and sells. All products are ethically sourced and with each purchase, money is donated to sustainability campaigns and communities in need.

Its product range includes toiletries, clothes, jewellery, home furnishings, lifestyle, plants and much much more.

The second signing is, Californian-inspired, eatery Tortilla, the largest and most successful fast-casual Mexican restaurant group in the UK specialising in the sale of freshly made Californian-inspired Mexican cuisine.

The brand is synonymous with an energetic, vibrant culture, and with providing a great value-for-money proposition.

Tortilla will open its doors on the High Street, next to Brown Bag in Spring 2023.

Rob Morris, general manager at The Lexicon says: “Independent retailer, FourState, has a huge range of products for eco-conscious shoppers, while Tortilla is our first taqueria and adds a very different genre to our dining mix.

“We are delighted to be offering our visitors yet more shopping and eating choices with the arrival of these two new signings. Both offer something very different and we look forward to welcoming them to The Lexicon.”

Cllr Marc Brunel-Walker, executive member of economic development and regeneration, said: “Another two great additions to The Lexicon. In these tough times, it is great to see our town centre expanding and growing, thanks to the loyal support of our residents and visitors.”
