Six Whiting Street is an independent designer retailer that aims to provide the perfect shopping experience for both men and women whether shopping in store, or online. The men’s store opened in the summer of 2007 and its home is a 16th century grade 2 listed building in the heart of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, England. The building itself boasts an array of original features including a grand oak staircase and an uncovered wall painting.
The store caters for a variety of ages, tastes and budgets and offers a diverse mix of brands. In 2008 Six Whiting Street was crowned as the Best New Business at the coveted and industry standard Drapers Awards. It was always the intention to introduce women’s clothing and Six Whiting Street Womenswear opened in the spring of 2011.
The women’s store is situated adjacent to the men’s in a more modern building with an abundance of window space from which to display collections. There is a large focus on denim and trousers amongst the collections and a vast array of accessories and gift wear. Customers who visit either store are guaranteed to receive a friendly welcome and an unparalleled level of customer service. www.sixwhitingstreet.co.uk has been live since 2009 and has consistently grown and upgraded to move with the ever developing e-commerce generation.
In November 2012, the site underwent a re-design and re-launch to incorporate womenswear and to best reflect the relaxed nature of the store.
