Dickies Retail Moves Into Manchester

Dickies, the World’s largest, privately owned workwear manufacturer and supplier, which originally started business in the US in 1922, is now expanding its UK retail operation with the opening of a 2,200 square foot, double fronted store at the popular Lowry Outlet Mall in Salford Quays, Manchester.

Known for its durable and functional work shirts, jackets, trousers and footwear, Dickies has been given another opportunity to showcase its tough and practical, protective work clothing, further establishing itself as the number 1 workwear brand in the UK.

At the company’s new Lowry Outlet Mall store, which is on the ground floor at unit G25, close to O2, Whistles, Nike, and Marks & Spencer, a wide selection of both work and fashion products are for sale, all at affordable discounted prices.

Announcing the opening of the new store, Maurice Morton, European Sales and Marketing Director for Dickies said: “Our decision to open another of our retail stores, especially at one of Manchester’s most popular shopping centres, is due to the high demand for the wider range of Dickies products, allowing consumers to be able to purchase them all from one visit. It is perfect timing for us that such an ideal outlet has become available”.

The company has its European headquarters based at Midsomer Norton in Somerset where there is a manufacturing facility and an 80,000 sq ft distribution centre which manages over 2 million products a year. Dickies workwear is now sold at over 4,000 trade outlets throughout the UK and Ireland with rapidly increasing distribution within Europe and the Middle East.

The opening of the new store in Salford Quays comes at a time when, in the midst of the worst UK and Global economic crisis for decades, the company has been awarded the coveted ‘D&B Rating 1’ status, having demonstrated to Dun & Bradstreet, the World’s leading source of business information and insight, that it is in a first class financial situation with the minimum risk of failure and the highest level of credit worthiness.
