Independent retailer doubles floorspace and increases brand selection.
Scottish independent retailer Chisholm Hunter has unveiled its brand new, extended Falkirk store, describing the space as exceeding all expectations.
The renovated Howgate Shopping Centre store was the second ever opened by the Chisholm Hunter group and its first outside of Glasgow.
Chisholm Hunter director Tracey Brown said: “We were all really excited when we first saw the plans for the store but the end result has far exceeded even our expectations and the first customers to the store have said they absolutely love it.
“The Falkirk store will always have a special place in our affections. I remember when we signed the lease on Valentine’s Day in 1994 and 19 years later it is an amazing feeling to be back here and making plans to roll out this new design to other Chisholm Hunter stores and any new stores we open."
Chisholm Hunter said the store development was made possible thanks to the continued support of its brand partners, staff and customers.
The Falkirk store’s floorspace has been doubled and is now able to host a larger number of brands with a new collection of Chisholm Hunter cocktail rings inspired by the 1920s and a larger selection of timepieces from brands including Longines, Rado, Tag Heuer and Raymond Weil.
The launch of the refurbished store is part of a major expansion programme for the family-owned business which currently operates 16 stores. It recently opened a store in Glasgow Fort and last year opened its first flagship store in the Bluewater mall in Kent.
