Centre hosts first north store

A NEW premium menswear store is opening in Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade.

Frank Bird Menswear, which stocks brands such as Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Barbour, Paul Smith and Lyle and Scott, has chosen the centre for its first North East shop.

The company is already known across Yorkshire, with customers travelling from across the north to visit its stores in Barnsley and Wakefield.

The Morpeth outlet will be its largest as it takes an 890 sq ft unit in the Edwardian-style gallery of the arcade.

Centre Manager Medi Parry said: “We are really excited about Frank Bird opening at Sanderson Arcade. It has some fantastic men’s brands and really understands good quality menswear.

“We know from the feedback we receive that a high quality menswear store is something our shoppers have been asking us for — now we really will have something for everyone.”

The company joins the line-up at the arcade at the same time as classic women’s fashion and footwear retailer Hobbs.

Both are expected to open next month.
