Mayor, Mayoress and Hinds family attend opening of 111th store.
F. Hinds has opened a new store in Coventry, taking the retail chain’s total number of shops to 111.
The 1,400 sq ft shop has opened in the Lower Precinct Shopping Centre in the centre of Coventry.
F.Hinds has described the new store fit as "bright, modern". It has been fitted with environmentally friendly LED lighting.
As well as selling F. Hinds usual line up of silver, diamond and gemstone jewellery, watch brands, Lladró porcelain and collectibles, the Coventry store will also offer the retailer’s Gold for Cash service, a repairs workshop and a bespoke jewellery design service.
Store manager Lisa Gregory, who was promoted from the company’s Banbury store, will be running the new Coventry shop alongside six new members of staff who were recruited locally.
Gregory said: “We have knowledgeable, well-trained and helpful staff, and shoppers will be delighted with the service they receive, whether selecting a beautiful diamond engagement ring, finding the perfect watch or having a battery replaced.”
The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Coventry attended the opening of the store along with representatives from the 5th, 6th and 7th generations of the F. Hinds’ family.
