F Hinds Luton

Jeweller F Hinds will open a new store in Luton later this month after a 27-year absence from the town.

The jeweller first opened a Luton store in 101 years ago in 1919, and moved to The Mall (previously The Arndale) in 1972, but closed its doors in 1993.

Now the company will open its 115th shop on Saturday 22 August in The Mall’s previous Ernest Jones unit.

F Hinds provides diamonds, jewellery, branded watches and gifts, as well as cash-for-gold, battery replacement, valuation, repair and insurance services.

It announced the opening date of the Luton store via its Twitter page.

The news comes after F Hinds voiced its concerns about high street retail earlier this year. Director Andrew Hinds told the BBC that retailers in small towns in particular were in trouble, and that only shops in malls and larger cities could expect to remain safe.
