Hobbs womenswear shop at Sanderson Arcade reopens following extensive refit

28 May 2024

Hobbs womenswear shop in Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade has reopened after receiving a fresh new look.

The store has been fully decorated with new floors and upgraded displays for footwear and accessories.

Following the investment, the store reopened on Saturday in time for the bank holiday weekend offering 20% off everything to celebrate.

The store joined the line up at Sanderson Arcade in 2012, recommitting to the centre last year with a new lease.

Sharon Latimer, Hobbs Morpeth Store Manager, said: “We are thrilled to have a fresh new look. Customers who have visited us already have been excited and inspired and can’t wait to see what the rest of the season brings. 

“Call in anytime and feel free to book a free style appointment. Whether you are seeking workwear solutions, occasion outfit inspiration or updating your wardrobe, the Hobbs Morpeth team are here to help. To book a personal styling appointment head to” 

Employing five members of staff, the shop is popular with Morpeth shoppers and joins a fantastic line up of luxury fashion stores including Phase Eight, Mint Velvet, Crew and the centre’s newest addition, The White Company, which opened last Wednesday [22 May].

And they will soon be accompanied by The Works, the UK’s leading family-friendly value retailer of gifts, arts, crafts, toys, books and stationery.

UK-based Oliver Bonas, which specialises in fashion, dresses, jewellery, homeware, furniture and gift shopping, will complete the line-up.

All of which continues to ensure the Arcade remains a leading shopping destination in Northumberland.

Sanderson Arcade’s Centre Manager, Lottie Thompson, said: “It’s certainly been an exciting year here at the Arcade with lots to celebrate with The White Company, Hobbs’ new look and us soon welcoming Oliver Bonas and The Works.

“Our regular visitors are thrilled with the new openings and we’re experiencing really strong footfall.”

The centre is embarking on a programme of events with the Sanderson Barkade Crufts style dog competition taking place across Saturday, June 15, and Sunday, June 16.
