Fashion-focused jewellery and watch store opens in Essex.

Fish Brothers Group has opened its second Charles Fish Boutique at a site in Harlow that was previously occupied by one of its Fish Brothers pawnbroking stores.

The store opened yesterday at shopping development The Harlow Centre in Essex.


The Charles Fish Boutique store concept is a new one for Fish Brothers Group with the first shop opening in November at the Eden Shopping Centre in High Wycombe. The stores focus on selling fashion-led watches and jewellery by brands such as Pandora, Links of London, ToyWatch and Bering.

Fish Brothers Group creative director Samantha Hansard said: “It is important to keep up to date with the latest trends in jewellery just as we do with fashion and we see the new Boutique fulfilling the modern woman’s desire to make jewellery a really important part of her fashion wardrobe. She could be mixing things up on the fashion front, incorporating high end fashion with the latest funky street trends and the same goes for her jewellery.

Despite its fashion focus, the Harlow Charles Fish Boutique will also sell fine jewellery and a Diamond Bar has been installed in the store to facilitate sales of diamond-set jewellery. It will also offer jewellery valuation, repair and cleaning services.

The Fish Brothers pawnbroking store has long been a fixture at the Harlow Centre and will continue to operate there in the unit next door to the Charles Fish Boutique shop.

Harvey Centre Manager Bryan Young said: “There have been a number of stores recently undergoing a revamp and we are delighted that Fish Brothers is bringing their new Charles Fish Boutique concept to the Centre demonstrating their confidence in the Centre and commitment to Harlow. We are sure our discerning customers will be as excited as we are to see the finished store.”
