111th store opens in Coventry

September 2013

The Lord Mayoress and Poppy Hinds

The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Coventry, assisted by representatives from the 5th, 6th and 7th generations of the F.Hinds’ family, together officially opened the company’s 111th store recently. Charlie (6, and 7th generation) was the youngest to help with the ribbon cutting alongside the oldest, Roy Hinds (81, Chairman/5th generation), plus Andrew Hinds (Director/6th generation) plus Paul (28) and Poppy (9) both 7th generation. Lord Mayor Cllr Crookes wished F.Hinds many years’ success in Coventry.

The bright, modern and also environmentally friendly jewellery store is located in the Lower Precinct Shopping Centre in the centre of Coventry (75B Lower Precinct, CV1 1DS tel. 024 7623 9716). Manageress Lisa Gregory was promoted from the company’s Banbury store, whilst six other members of staff were recruited locally.

The new F.Hinds' 1,400 square foot store is on the corner of the main square and the walkway between the covered market, and is immediately noticeable by the impressively long window displays. The bright layout created by the use of environmentally friendly lighting highlights the extensive range of gold, platinum and silver, diamond and gemstone jewellery, major watch brands, Lladró porcelain and collectibles. F.Hinds also offers services such as on the spot Gold For Cash with unmatched redemption rates – the Lord Mayor immediately declined an offer for his beautiful gold ceremonial chain; a bespoke jewellery design service; valuations, repairs and watch strap and battery replacements.

“We have knowledgeable, well trained and helpful staff, and shoppers will be delighted with the service they receive, whether selecting a beautiful diamond engagement ring, finding the perfect watch or having a battery replaced”, said Manageress Lisa.

The store features environmentally friendly, energy efficient LED lighting throughout, not only for the shop but also all the store rooms, staff rest rooms and even the emergency lighting. Established in 1856, F.Hinds is Britain's leading independent family jewellers and is delighted to welcome all Coventrians to this new and very stylish F.Hinds store.
