One of Lancaster’s oldest fashion stores undergoes makeover

A popular Lancaster’s fashion store has reopened following a makeover.

After a closure during the May Day bank holiday weekend, Renes has reopened after being refurbished.

Renes first brought fashion to the Lancaster high street in 1955.

The business was established by Irene and Pamela Newby and has passed through family generations to the present day.

Cousins, Tiffany Moore and Amanda Parkinson have co-owned the shop on Common Garden Street for over 10 years.

Amanda says is now ready to take some time to enjoy semi-retirement with Tiffany taking the helm.

Tiffany said: “At Renes, customer service is at the forefront of everything. We embrace the personal touch and pride ourselves on our personal shopping experience.

‘’A service that is ever diminishing across the retail sector. We aim for customers to walk out of Renes having had a wonderful shopping experience and feeling like a million dollars! We take immense pride in fulfilling our customer’s wants and needs in an industry that is ever becoming a more challenging sector to be a part of.”

“Many of our customers have been shopping with us for over 30 years. This kind of loyalty is a rare find and we’re not only truly grateful, but so proud to deliver an experience where people can’t wait to come back time and time again!

‘We’ve been around since 1955, next year sees our 70th year in business and long may that continue.”

‘’Over 67% of businesses in Lancaster are independently owned and Tiffany is keen to keep Renes on the High Street, firmly embedded within the local independent business community.

‘’We’re committed to taking Renes forwards in ever changing and challenging times.’’
