Lancashire-based independent retailer Church Jewellers has opened the doors to a new store in Preston.

The Preston boutique is Church Jewellers’ second branch, with its first shop located in Ormskirk.

Located on Winckley Street, store owner Patrick O’Donnell choose Preston for its second boutique as he believes it is “on the up”.


O’Donnell told local newspaper, Lancashire Post: “With lots of places you hear of them getting talked down for filling empty buildings with charity shops but that’s not the case in Preston. It feels like the city is really on the up and I wanted to be part of it.”

Winckley Street previously has no other jewellers, but so far Church Jewellers has been welcomed to the area with open arms from locals.

The family-run jewellery retailer offers predominantly wedding and engagement jewellery, specialising in bespoke gold and diamond pieces. The store also sells pre-owned items, and offers a repair service on jewellery and watches.

In Ormskirk the store is called Church Street Jewellers, so the name Church was chosen to keep a link between the two businesses.
