Psyche owner Steve Cochrane says his mission is “to create the ultimate retail theatre”, and many could agree that this young fashion indie does just that.
The iconic store spent £328,000 last year on a revamp, with 17 exclusive new in-store boutiques.
It also celebrated the big 3-0 and is enjoying annual growth of 10.3%.
Investment in Psyche continues in 2013 with a 5,000 sq ft extension on the top floor to house its online business, new EA7 and Polo Ralph Lauren shop-in-shops, and the indie has teamed up with Middlesbrough College to launch a Jamie Oliver-style chef’s training restaurant on its first floor.
