Not only was Urban Vintage shortlisted for the Young Fashion Retailer of the Year accolade in last year’s Drapers Fashion Awards, but the indie secured sales growth across all its categories.
Urban Vintage owner Dan Pottle believes his passionate team, who are “ready to help every customer with their individual needs”, was a key reason the store was voted one of the country’s most inspiring indies.
In the past year, the indie has focused on its marketing, which included email campaigns sent to its 11,000-strong customer database, in-store 10% discount evenings and participating in charity fashion shows.
