A brand new loungewear area has been introduced, complete with a cosy fireplace and electric fire which houses Ugg, Calvin Klein and Stripe and Stare collections. 


The store has also had a complete refit of men’s and ladies Barbour and Barbour International, which have been modernised to create stunning new areas for the store’s bestselling brand, as well as expanding the range of products instore.

A brand new wine area has also been created bringing everything a wine drinker needs, featuring a range of glasses and decanters from the beautiful Riedel Glassware, cocktail shakers and stylish glasses from Bloomingville plus unique wine preservers from Coravin. 


The new brands sit alongside the Sandersons range of high end and heritage brands for women including Holland Cooper, Barbour, Pennyblack, Whistles and Tommy Hilfiger. The menswear department also features Barbour as well as Jacob Cohen, Gran Sasso, Tommy Hilfiger and Armani Exchange. 


Sandersons has built up a reputation for its range luxury fragrances, many of which are sold exclusively at Sandersons, with brands including House of Oud, Inito, Parfum de Marley, Robert Piquet and many more.


The store will reopen with the launch of stunning new season arrivals across all departments and brands.


Managing Director of Sandersons, Lisa Fox said: “We have been really busy over the last few weeks getting everything ready and perfect for our reopening. We have some great new styles and products in across all our departments and we are really looking forward to opening the doors and welcoming our lovely customers.


“We have also had a new soundtrack created for our stores by the award winning Ibiza DJ Mina Eivissa, to create a real feel-good summer vibe in store!”
