70 years and counting for Biggers of Bailgate


We’re excited to announce that this month our pals Biggers of Bailgate are celebrating their 70th Birthday. Located in the uphill area of Lincoln, family-run business Biggers of Bailgate opened in 1944 and have since grown and adapted to become one of Lincoln’s most-loved and iconic businesses.

Buoyed by a heritage wrapped in Lincoln culture and a traditional approach to customer relationships, Biggers has evolved from humble beginnings selling bikes and cycle repairs on pavement displays to providing a range of the latest hardware, cookware and baking gadgets and most recently cake decorating products to customers throughout Lincolnshire. Last year we helped Biggers with the launch of their biggest digital venture to date with the development of an ecommerce website allowing their customers throughout the UK to buy their favourite brands online.
