Jewellery brand, Ramsdens, has invested in Chippenham, opening its latest store in Emery Gate Shopping Centre in time for Christmas.

The shop will offer Chippenham’s locals new and pre-owned jewellery for men and women, including diamond, gold and silver jewellery. Ramsdens also stocks a range of preowned watches in-store and online at www.ramsdensjewellery.co.uk

For those jetting off on winter sun breaks or looking for an alternative Christmas gift, Ramsdens offers competitive rates on a wide choice of foreign currencies.

In addition to jewellery and foreign currency, the store will offer a diverse variety of services in-store including pawnbroking, cheque cashing and gold buying.

Ramsdens’ launch in Chippenham rounds off a successful 13 months for the brand, which has seen it expand into the South West for the first time. The new store increases Ramsdens’ presence in the area, following the opening in The Galleries shopping centre in Bristol in November 2018. The new store in Chippenham creates three new jobs in the local community, including sales assistant and managerial roles.

Danielle Harradine, Branch Manager, Ramsdens Chippenham, said, “We’re really excited to be opening in Chippenham and look forward to welcoming plenty of local faces to our new store. With Christmas just around the corner, we can’t wait to help customers get the most bang for their buck, whether they’re looking for jewellery gifts or in-need of great value currency for holidays during the festive season! Our wide variety of new and pre-owned jewellery will no doubt be a favourite of the town’s savviest shoppers.”

Phil Maclean, Marketing Director, Eagle One Limited, owner of Emery Gate Shopping Centre, said, “We delighted that such a well-known and trusted brand in Ramsdens has joined Emery Gate Shopping Centre. With its excellent reputation and a wide variety of services, we’re glad to offer shoppers a store for their buying and selling needs. We welcome them to Chippenham and wish them every success.”

The AIM-listed brand has served more than 800,000 customers over the past financial year and has built a strong reputation.

Established in 1987 in Stockton-on-Tees, Ramsdens has more than 160 branches across Northern England, Scotland and Wales.
