Its been over a year since we opened our Crystal Palace store which has proven a tremendous success with the local community. On the strength of this we have recently opened our seventh stand alone Simon Carter shop in Blackheath, London. The London suburb is even more prosperous and leafy and the store is in a prime location on Tranquil Vale just down from the station. The site originates from the 1900s and has since only had two tenants!
We’ve spent the last few months stripping the store back to basics to reveal and restore all the original features right down to the store front, curved glass windows, tessellated porch entrance and Victorian wooden floorboards.
Signature Liberty print shirts, British tweed jackets and rich corduroy trousers will fill the clothing rails of the new store – not omitting vintage cabinets filled with a selection of our quality accessories including watches, leather wallets, luggage, hats, gloves & scarves and of course cufflinks true to Simon’s reigning title as ‘The King of Cufflinks’.
We’ve attracted a great deal of interest and curiosity from the local community. The Blackheath Society and other groups are following our progress closely, monitoring our restoration of their much loved shop front.
Here’s to hoping we succeed the past tenants!
