Independent jeweller Pressleys is to expand its store portfolio with the opening of a new flagship store in Brighton in November.
Situated on East Street, one of Brighton’s premium shopping areas, the new 2,500sqft (232sq m) premises will be arranged over four floors and will include three floors of retail space, together with a customer service and repair centre on the top floor.
The opening represents a move back to Brighton for the retailer, which also has stores in Worthing and Chichester, and formerly owned a shop in Brighton that closed 15 years ago.
Managing director Jonathan Pressley explained: “I am really excited to be re-opening Pressleys in Brighton. This is something I have wanted to achieve since I came into the business six years ago.
“This store will be the new flagship for the Pressleys brand and, what’s more, it will be in a premium position on one of Brighton’s most exclusive roads.”
Brands already confirmed for the new store include Marco Bicego, Hans D Krieger, Astley Clarke and Shaun Leane, in addition to Pressleys’ own diamond jewellery collection.
In addition to the retail space, the new store will feature a VIP hospitality suite, due to open next year, where Pressleys will entertain clients with private dining and informal gatherings.
The interior of the new store will be designed by top retail interior design firm, l’Atelier Five.
Pressleys is currently recruiting staff to work in the new store. For more information contact Robert Reynard (Robert.Reynard@pressleys.co.uk) .
