Pawnbroker takes over site of closed Chillcott’s for ninth shop.
Pawnbroker and jeweller Suttons & Robertsons has increased its store portfolio with the opening of a shop in Bristol.
The store, on the city’s Park Street, is the London-based chain’s ninth shop.
Suttons & Robertsons has moved into the unit previously occupied by jewellery store Chillcott’s, which fell on hard times and closed before Christmas. Chillcott’s had been trading from that location, previously a residence, since the 1860s.
A spokesman for Suttons & Robertsons told The Bristol Post: "The opening once again assures the Bristol community that this shop famous for quality jewellery and pawnbroking will be continued.
"Much of the old and historic areas within the shop that have, until now been lost behind cavity walls and false ceilings are now exposed to show the glory of this magnificent building. We are delighted to be here in Bristol and we are thrilled with the new premises."
Suttons & Robertsons now has stores in London, Manchester, St Albans, Birmingham and Liverpool.
