Womenswear indie Stolen from Susie opened a new store at Dorchester’s Brewery Square at the weekend.
Susie Chapman and her husband Kevin founded the business at 61 High Street in Totnes, Devon, with their daughter Lucy in 2005. The 800 sq ft store at 61 High Street stocks womenswear branded under the Stolen by Susie name, with core pricing between £8 and £48.
They opened a second, 1,400 sq ft store in Barnstaple in June.
The third, 1,200 sq ft store at 6 Brewery Square features Stolen by Susie womenswear at affordable prices, with stock that changes almost weekly. It has sofas for partners to relax on while their other halves browse and three fitting rooms.
Kevin Chapman said: “The economy is starting to grow, so we feel it is the right time to expand.”
Brewery Square is a £100m retail and leisure destination scheme operated by Waterhouse and Resolution Property on the site of the old Eldridge Pope Brewery in Dorchester. It is home to retailers including Joules, Jones the Bootmaker, Hobbs, Phase Eight and Gerry Weber.
The second phase of the scheme has 15 more shops and will open next year.
