Retail veteran Tim Keating, who co-founded the respected Liverpool mini-chain Drome, returned to the city’s fashion scene just over a year ago with the opening of premium menswear indie Weavers Door.
In the past year Keating appointed retail director Lee Fleming and smashed the store’s targets to become, he argues, “the key independent in Liverpool for heritage brands”.
For Keating, product is king and shoppers are not only of the utmost importance, but he describes them as “friends”. Last year, the 650 sq ft indie supplied a range of entertainment for these friends, including regular music nights, a denim evening and a monthly pop-up barbershop.
