A Dandy move to one of UK’s Coolest

Following a leap of faith from its established home inside Hopkinson’s Vintage Centre, The Dandy Gent’s Nottingham shop team is delighted with the response from loyal clients who have followed them across the City to its new Hockley location.

Hockley, recently voted one of the UK’s 12 ‘coolest postcodes in 2022’ by The Times newspaper, is the beating heart of Nottingham’s independent business scene and crammed with cool shops, bars, cafés restaurants owned and run by local business people.

“We absolutely love it here and we’re all really happy and thrilled that so many of our customers have followed us over!” said Nottingham shop owner Sarah. “We had of course hoped they would, but you never quite know – change can be unsettling and a hassle for clients. Every one of them has been complimentary of the new place and most find it actually easier to get to – which is a real bonus.”

The new 2-floor shop on Heathcoat Street in Hockley was previously a language school, travel agents and a picture framers – but it has never looked so good as it does today.

“We’ve given the new shop the full Dandy treatment, replicating the look and atmosphere that was so popular over on Station Street.” Said Sarah. “Since being here we’ve already had a lot more attention and our bookings are increasing nicely – even at this traditionally quiet period of the year.” She continued.

The new shop has four stations on the ground floor – including one permanent station for wheelchair users. Downstairs is still in need of a makeover, but should have three more chairs and more retail space available later this year.
