Independent retailer continues growth plans with slick new store.
Leeds-based retailer Phillip Stoner has opened a new boutique in the recently-opened Trinity Leeds shopping centre, marking its third retail store in the north of England.
The store is housed within the £350 million shopping complex, specialising in platinum and diamond jewellery. Phillip Stoner managing director Jonathan Stoner described the store location as "impossible to turn down".
Alongisde jewellery from brands including Ungar & Ungar, Canada Star, Portfolio of Fine Diamonds, Charles Green and Ti Sento, the Trinity Leeds store will offer jewellery repairs and restorations, bespoke jewellery design and valuations.
The interior has a contemporary design with clean lines and a high-spec finish to create a luxe yet relaxed shopping atmosphere, akin to the style of its Manchester store.
In recent years Phillip Stoner has grown its business, opening its first Manchester boutique in late 2012 and expanding and refurbishing its flagship store in Leeds’ Victoria Quarter. It has also added a state-of-the-art jewellery workshop on-site at the Victoria Quarter store.
The Trinity Leeds shopping mall features interactive digital media screens, free Wi-Fi, contemporary art installations and regular in-house events to help bring customers to the centre.
