Ribble Valley, Lancashire. (PRWEB UK) 17 October 2011
Deep in rural Lancashire, at the far end of the Ribble Valley, is the Jewel in the Crown of one of Fashions most extraordinary successes along with their other "Little Gems".
Off the beaten track in the tiny village of Rimington can be found an upmarket fashion business which amazes first time visitors. Cosgroves has been trading over the last 100 years in many different forms. Originally it was a travelling drapery business around Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales, selling good quality merchandise to the farming community. It has evolved into a prestigous company where service, quality and fashionable, wearable clothes matter.
Their mailing list consists of 8,000 customers from all over the British Isles and the name Cosgroves has become synonymous with standards that give the customer a pleasurable way of deciding what their fashion statement is going to be over the next Season.
Dorothy Cosgrove and her family are determined to ensure that ordinary, genuine people can find a way of shopping that is still a pleasing experience. Not everybody wants to wear "high fashion", throw away quirky clothes. The mass market really wants to be dressed in fashionable garments that will give good service, be wearable for quite some time and still not boring!
The age group for Cosgroves is 30 - 90? As they get older, many ladies never lose their love of fashion and still want to be dressed in young clothes whilst not looking like "mutton dressed as lamb". Dorothy's 40 years experience along with her daughters Sue and Helen ensure that all ages can wear the fashion offering that Cosgroves provide.
Their Rimington store provides casual outfits, evening wear, mother of the bride and groom and also outfits for wedding guests. Labels include Basler, Gerry Weber, Lisa Campione, Condici and Joseph Ribkoff besides many others. Handbags and jewellery are also available. Menswear has just been reintroduced into the Rimington store - to its roots where it began.
Cosgroves in Whalley is the main base for Menswear. There, customers can buy business suits, jackets, trousers and shoes along with lifestyle brands such as Gant, Tommy Hilfiger, Olymp and Greencoast. This means that there whole wardrobe can be bought under one roof. Paul and Martyn provide a unique service where customers can be sure of a very warm welcome.
Cosgroves at Huntley's - in Samlesbury - is a more casual shopping experience. Enjoy a leisurely lunch, pick up your groceries in Huntley's food hall before enjoying Cosgrove's selection of casual wear for both ladies and gentlemen.
