Who you need to know Owners Keith Ewing and Margaret McKay
Brands include Converse, Dockers, Fred Perry, Gant, Hunter, Rampant Sporting, Scotch & Soda, Sebago
Number Eight co-owner Margaret McKay says her two-year-old life-style indie knows who its customers are and what they want.
It’s a belief affirmed by the store racking up nominations for Best New Business at the Drapers Fashion Awards for two years running.
Major initiatives introduced during the past year include establishing a slick website, a fully integrated EPoS system and a customer loyalty scheme.
McKay believes Number Eight “is difficult to match in terms of look, ambience, merchandising and customer service”.
