Having recently celebrated ten years in business in Cleethorpes, Crofts have now expanded to include a new high street branch in nearby Immingham. The newly refurbished branch forms part of the regeneration of Kennedy Way - Immingham’s main central shopping area, which is also home to several national chains including, B&M, Poundstretcher and Aldi. It forms part of a £100,000 investment for Crofts, which also sees the Cleethorpes’ branch doubling in size, with the acquisition of the neighbouring former EA Broadburn chemist in St Peter’s Avenue, both branches feature touch-screen technology accessible from the footpath, making it possible to book appointments 24/7 and e-mail property details home outside of branch opening hours.
Explaining the reasons behind the Immingham branch location, Gary Croft said: “I think with the renaissance of Kennedy Way we wanted to be part of it, and we thought Immingham as a town was under-served by estate agents. “This is the first time a mainstream, bigger, agent has come into the town, I think there is space for it, and there is a good catchment. “There is also the rental factor to consider in Immingham, for a lot of people looking to come into the area for work. “We did our research, we looked into what had sold in the postcodes over the past five years, and I thought we could really get some market share and provide a good service to the town.” Crofts, with Immingham branch manager Vicki Parish, are proud to be the first high street agent to serve the popular residential town and its surrounding villages, and look forward to becoming more involved in the support of its growing community.
