A retailer who ran a chain of denim stores in the 1980s and 1990s is launching a menswear store in Lytham St Annes in Lancashire.
Jeremy Earley will launch No 19 Menswear next month, selling denim, T-shirts, sweatshirts and casual shirts.
Earley had two stores in Burnley in the 1980s and 1990s, called Jeremy Patrick’s and Feathers, plus two Earley’s stores in Blackpool and Lytham St Anne’s and a Charisma store, also in Blackpool, selling denim and casualwear.
But Earley, who is now commercial director for television company The Life Channel, said there was a gap in the market for a shop that sold good basic menswear in the area.
“It will be aimed at lads of 16- to 28-years-old,” he said. It’s a difficult time to be opening a shop, but guys in that age group still have some money to spend.”
Earley is in talks with suppliers about product for the store, which will open on Clifton Street, just off the town’s main high street. Earley’s daughter Jade Earley will run the store.
