Historic Newcastle jewellery retailer, Reid & Sons, has launched Mappin & Webb in store, marking a collaboration of two companies steeped in tradition and quality.
Reid & Sons is one of the oldest businesses in Newcastle – established in 1778 by Christian Ker Reid. In its history, the company has worked with the royal family, the Admiralty and Indian Government, and has always maintained high standards of quality and service.
Both Reid & Sons and Mappin & Webb have always been highly-regarded for their skilled people, with Mappin & Webb holding Royal Warrants since 1897.
Reid & Sons general manager, Jason West, comments: “It’s a really exciting time for the business as we start this next chapter with Mappin & Webb. The product range will be even more luxurious as a result so we know our customers will fall in love with the new styles straight away.”
Reid & Sons will showcase an enhanced offering of jewellery and watches, including key lines from Mappin & Webb, which will be exclusive to the store in the North East.
Newcastle-born executive brand director at Mappin & Webb, Craig Bolton, says: “Mappin & Webb is synonymous with excellence, craftsmanship and true British design and we believe that Reid & Sons represents all of these qualities while being seamlessly embedded in the region’s heritage. We’re confident that bringing the two together will mean great success for the future.”
