Llandudno’s Shops Bounce Back From Lockdown

New openings and expansions of independent shops in Llandudno town centre are driving a retail revival, the Daily Post reports. The attractive Victorian seaside town is already a favourite destination for leisure and shopping in North Wales, and new investment is proving that the pandemic hasn’t held it back.

Despite the collapse of national chains such as Debenhams and Outfit, which both have branches in the town, independent retailers are thriving. The Post reports on new arrivals, such as Gear Menswear, which has been set up by Andrew Jones in the Victoria Centre.

Former construction worker Andrew is taking over a unit vacated by his daughter Chloe, who is moving her clothing boutique About You to a larger unit in the centre.

Andrew, 55, owner of Gear Menswear, said: “I had seen Debenhams and Outfit closing and saw the potential for a menswear store aiming at those aged 25 and upwards. We are confident about Llandudno, people will always buy clothes and not everyone wants to do this online and have the hassle of having to send things back.”

Little Lily & Co baby and children’s clothing is also opening a store in the centre at the end of May. It will be the second shop for the business, who are branching out from Rhos-on-Sea. Giftware shop Murshi is also planning to open a second store. The Devon surfwear brand Saltrock is a further retailer opening a new store in the precinct.

We Cycles and Bikes Betwys are expanding to form a combined rental, sales, and servicing business, in conjunction with the Providero coffee house on Upper Mostyn Street. Edward Hillier, chief executive of Llandudno landowner Mostyn Estates, said the lettings showed that confidence levels in the town were high, and more deals were in the pipeline.
