We are sorry to announce that after almost three years Alex is leaving us to join the real world!

alexAlex joined our Preston store whilst studying at University in Preston and eventually worked between our Southport and Preston shops. During his time with us we received many complimentary comments from customers regarding his product knowledge and his excellent customer service skills.

Alex graduated from university last year with a degree in Police and Criminal Investigation and has secured a full time position in the financial industry.

We have attached a photograph following his graduation, we think that you will agree he scrubs up well! Alex would be the first to admit that he is more comfortable in his Trailblazers, Element T and a Microgrid Zip.

We would like to thank him for his help and support and wish him well for the future.

Preston is an ancient market town first documented in the domesday survey of 1086.
The store has recently re located to bigger and better premises still within the Miller Arcade.

    We would like to say a great big thank you to all the customers both old and new who braved the terrible weather and supported our Christmas event on Saturday.

    We apologize for any delays in processing sales but hopefully this gave everyone the opportunity to enjoy a glass of mulled wine a mince pie and have a chat with fellow Rohanists!
