Premium Lancaster-based independent jeweller Banks Lyon has said it plans to open a second store during the first half of this year.
Speaking exclusively to Retail Jeweller, business owner Rodney Banks-Lyon revealed that the new store will be located in Kendal, Cumbria, and he hopes it will be opened at some point in the spring of this year.
“We have secured a unit in the town, which is a former building society, and plans for the new store are already well underway,” he said.
The new Kendal store will be smaller in size than the retailer’s existing store, which is located in a prime position on Lancaster’s high street.
Banks Lyon, a member of The Houlden Group, scooped the prestigious Independent Retailer of the Year category at the UK Jewellery Awards in 2014 and is well known as one of the premier jewellery and watch retailers in the northwest.
