28 Coes of Ipswich

20-28 Norwich Road, Ipswich, Suffolk

Who you need to know Managing director William Coe

Brands include Barbour, Firetrap, Gant, Hobbs, Lyle & Scott, Ted Baker, Tommy Hilfiger

Coes of Ipswich is the largest store of the eight-strong Coes indie department store group, covering a whopping 36,000 sq ft.

Part of a family-owned business, which began its operations in Suffolk in 1928, the store is now managed by the third generation of the family.

It underwent a massive revamp in July. Managing director William Coe says the six-month refurbishment has paid off, with sales “in excess of double digits up on the previous year”.

During 2011, Coes’ buyers continued to source new products by visiting trade shows including Bread & Butter, Pitti, CIFF and Spring Fair International.
