New store for Phillip Stoner in Victoria Quarter

New store for Phillip Stoner in Victoria Quarter
Phillip Stoner the Jeweller has recently extended its store in Victoria Quarter’s County Arcade, moving into the adjacent unit.
The new extension allows the store to display new collections, including those of Leeds-based designer Andrew Geoghegan and London designer Rachel Galley, as well as the introduction of a brand new online/in-store service, Portfolio of Fine Diamonds.
The acquisition of Portfolio of Fine Diamonds in March earlier this year allowed customers to browse the entire ring collection online, and in the comfort of their own home. Once reserved online, these items can be viewed at the Victoria Quarter store with the assistance of the knowledgeable and dedicated Phillip Stoner team.

MD Jon Stoner commented, “With the store expanding from a double to a triple unit, it allowed us to create a new state-of-the-art workshop and a diamond room, and with Portfolio of Fine Diamonds means we can offer an even wider choice to customers.”

VQ Centre Director, John Bade added, “With this expansion, Phillip Stoner has further cemented their position in the centre, which also serves as an endorsement of the success of their store here and of VQ more broadly.
It’s particularly notable that this sort of significant investment in the centre comes from a local independent retailer, which is encouraging on a number of levels, not least the confidence the business has in their long-term future within VQ.”
