The Pockets' story started in 1996 at their flagship store in Shrewsbury, eventually expanding to include 4 more stunning stores in: Newcastle-under-Lyme, Hanley, Nantwich and Worcester. Over the years the shop’s décor has changed a little, but the Pockets ethos has remained the same since day one; exceptional customer service, attention to detail and an offering of the highest quality products, creating the best possible shopping experience. With a team of friendly, knowledgeable and experienced staff they pride themselves on giving personal assistance tailored to each customer, setting themselves apart from the usual suspects and high street fashion chains.
Our flagship in Shrewsbury now includes 5 floors of exceptional fashion, enabling us to exhibit brands in a bespoke setting, reflecting the personality of each brand and allowing our customers a shopping experience like no other. Each of the new rooms perfectly mix the style aesthetic of the prestigious brands we stock with the character of the historic building they are situated in, creating a comfortable and relaxing environment and a sense of occasion. This unique shopping experience has been faithfully recreated across each of our stores, which display the latest fashions in stunning and unusual retail environments a world away from the often bland high street shopping experience.
Our love of everything fashion is clear to see in our dedication to bring stores to Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcester and Cheshire. We will continue to bring the top brands in the world to our customers who will remain the most important aspect of the Pockets ideology.
In 2010 we launched pockets.co.uk – a natural extension of our successful bricks and mortar business that offers the same level of product knowledge and impeccable service to customers in over 250 countries worldwide.

Our founder and Director Paul spending an entire tour of the Crockett & Jones factory embarrassing us all by haggling for a good price on some Cavendish loafers he was particularly smitten by! Of course, he didn’t get a discount…
