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.

Directions to our shop: The main road into Southport is the A565 and is easily accessed from the M6 & M58. Lord Street is well sign posted and ample parking is available in the town centre along with an excellent Park and Ride system which again is well sign posted.

Phil & Jennifer Whittaker opened the Southport store in 2003. Daughter Lisa now manages the store and is aided and abetted by mum, Jennifer.

The Rohan shop is located in what can only be described as one of the finest examples of a Victorian Arcade in the UK. To step into the Wayfarers Arcade is to discover a unique experience that sets it apart from so many precincts and shopping centres. The impressive features provide a charming environment in which customers can explore the intriguing collection of specialist shops.

The Grade II Listed Arcade still maintains its position at the heart of Southport as an integral part of the town’s Victorian heritage. The Wayfarers Arcade is situated off Lord Street, the famous tree lined boulevard which is Southport’s unique retail centre and one of the many attractions for visitors.

Southport attracts over five million visitors per annum. This is partly due to traditional annual events, most notably the Flower Show which has a national profile. Southport regularly plays host to the Open Golf Championship at it’s Royal Birkdale Golf Club. In an area rich in golf courses, many of which have championship status, the sport is taken very seriously. Southport also has an RSPB site that attracts birds to the wetlands and is approximately 2 miles from the town centre. Martin Mere Nature Reserve is located within 10 miles of the town and besides attracting many migratory birds also have Otters and Beavers. Southport visitor information and  special events.
