Three and a half years ago we opened the doors to a retail space we had created at 14 Tib Lane, Manchester. We wanted to design a context that would reflect the beautifully well made products we would stock there. It was a little off the beaten retail path, but wonderful brands such as Mackintosh, Sunspel, Drake’s, John Smedley, Mourne Textiles and Alfred Sargent considered ours to be a suitable home for their products. Most importantly, we were fortunate to welcome many good and valued customers who helped us to grow to an extent that we needed to consider a new chapter.
Our new premises at Hope Mill – a Grade II listed former cotton mill in historic Ancoats – will provide much needed space for the e-Commerce side of our business. We will also launch a ‘by-appointment’ retail space which will enable us to offer our customers the luxuries of time and space and a level of informed service which we believe is rare in contemporary retail. It will also enable us to expand the range of made-to-order and bespoke products we are able to offer to our customers.
Farewell Tib Lane and thanks to all of our customers for your support. We hope to welcome you to Hope Mill soon.
