CW Sellors’ brand W Hamond is planning to open a store in the Victoria Quarter in Leeds this month, which will carry hand-selected watch brands and employ a number of on-site watch specialists.
The shop, which carries the tagline The Original Whitby Jet Shop, is scheduled to open its doors in mid October on Queen Victoria Street.
The store will specialise in the sale of jewellery set with British gemstone Whitby Jet. It will also carry diamond jewellery and some specialist watch brands, which a spokesperson said will be unveiled in due course.
The Leeds opening will be the third W Hamond store. It also has boutiques in Whitby and York.
CW Sellors managing director Chris Sellors said: “We are delighted to be opening this new boutique in the prestigious Victoria Quarter which is synonymous with fashion, style and quality – corresponding perfectly with our brand values.
"We will be opening alongside a number of the world’s leading brands such as Vivienne Westwood, Harvey Nichols and Radley, the move will not only raise the profile our brand but also of the work we do with British gemstones and manufacture.”
