Bridalwear firm expands with second high street outlet

Denise and Tiffany Thorpe

The owner of a bridalwear store in Derby has opened a second, larger, outlet.

Tiffany Jordan Bridal has taken a second unit at 47 Queen Street, owned by Clowes Developments, which has been vacant since last summer.

The new store, Tiffany Jordan Couture will run separately to its existing business offering high-end bridal gowns from brands including Randy Fenoli, Evie Young, Ronald Joyce, Casablanca Bridal and Elena Mora House of Couture.

The owners of the established bridal business, Denise Thorpe and her daughter Tiffany, have completed a fit-out of the new premises, with mood lighting, accessory zones and even an “I said yes to the dress” backdrop.

Denise Thorpe said: “The wedding sector have had to batten down the hatches and weather the turbulent storms thrown our way over the past year, but brighter days are on the horizon. With mass vaccinations now gathering pace, we hope our industry will soon be able to return to the hectic pre-COVID pace we have become so accustomed to. Wedding professionals up and down the UK are eager to get back to delivering first rate services for our couples.”

Estée Coulthard–Boardman from FHP Property Consultants added: “I am delighted to have been involved in letting this property to the growing bridal retailer on behalf of Clowes Developments.

“This letting is one of many examples reinforcing that the Derby retail market remains resilient. Despite recent events, I am still speaking with a number of parties interest in taking on a retail unit, whether they’re hoping to start a new venture or expand their existing premises.

“I wish Tiffany Jordan Bridal the very best of luck, and I can’t wait to see their business blossom in their brand new space.”
