Yorkshire-based retailer W Boyes & Co Ltd has continued to grow its business by taking a lease of a new store on Swadford Street in Skipton.
W Boyes & Co Ltd was launched in 1881 when William Boyes opened a small store in Eastborough, Scarborough selling odd lots and remnants from merchants.
The business soon moved into larger premises in Scarborough and opened stores in York and Hull in the early 1900’s. In recent years it has grown to include stores across Yorkshire, the North East, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.
Andrew Boyes, managing director said:
“Skipton is the first store we’ve opened in our North Yorkshire homeland for several years and it’s great to be bringing the Boyes name to this part of Yorkshire.
“We’re pleased with the building we’ve chosen from which we will be trading over two floors. We very much look forward to trading in the town.
“The team at Langleys continue to support us in securing the leases for all of our stores.”
Tim Cross, Head of Commercial Property at Langleys, said:
“We’re proud to work alongside such a great Yorkshire company, helping the company to expand its offering.
“We continue to work with W Boyes & Co Ltd in respect of its exisiting store portfolio and as the firm continues to look for new retail space across the country.”
