Herbert Brown Brings Sparkle To Wigan
Wednesday, 03 March 2010
One of Britain's most established pawnbroking and retail jewellery chains, Herbert Brown has invested in a new Wigan store, bringing a beautiful range of both vintage and new jewellery as well as an old gold and jewellery buying facility to the town's Hope Street.
The store has created six new jobs for local people including branch manager Helen Jones and branch assistant Sarah Leahy. Helen says: "Today's launch event was a huge success with hundreds of Wigan shoppers joining in the celebrations with a complimentary glass of champagne and jewellery valuations."
The Hope Street store offers Wigan's shoppers a wide selection of jewellery items for every budget including one off vintage pieces and Herbert Brown's exclusive Fairytale range. There is also a gold and jewellery buying service for Wigan shoppers who are keen to cash in on today's high gold prices.
Herbert Brown jewellers and pawnbrokers was founded in Leeds in 1840 and currently has 35 stores across the country. The company specialises in new, second-hand and antique jewellery, including pre-owned Rolex and other luxury watches, and is one of the largest pawnbroking and retail jewellery chains in the UK.
Rod Mason, managing director of Herbert Brown, says: "Herbert Brown is keen to expand its operation across the north of England and Wigan was high on the list for investment.
"We are delighted as the response to the new store has been fantastic. We are a traditional business which has been in operation for 170 years so customers know they can trust us to provide the best pawnbroking valuations as well as delivering exceptional new jewellery alongside unique vintage pieces."
