Chosen by Paul Harrison, sales agent for womenswear brand Faber
Jane Young is one of the best-run indies in the UK. Despite its relatively remote location - tucked away down a little lane in the market town of Newark - it attracts customers from all over the country.
The store is laid out over two levels, with daywear downstairs.
The upstairs is dedicated to occasionwear and gets a lot of visits from women seeking out mother-of-the-bride outfits. The store’s buyers always find pieces that are flattering and well cut. There is also a large range of accessories including hats, handbags, jewellery and footwear.
The store sells many of the more premium labels such as Armani Collezioni and Doris Streich, and offers a great mix of brands for its customers, who tend to be 30-plus.
Mother and daughter team Janet and Jane Wilkinson have a good eye for picking out brands that sit together really well. The customer service they offer is also fantastic.
It’s so important for indies to make customers feel looked after and they do this brilliantly, treating every customer like an individual and taking the time to chat to them.
