Fashion store expands within Five Valleys

Independent fashion store, Priyanka, has expanded its bohemian fashion business into a second shop within Five Valleys shopping centre in Stroud.

The flagship store, next door to Curio Lounge, opened in March and the owner has been overwhelmed with the response from shoppers.

Ashok Kumor, owner of Priyanka, said: "I have been delighted with the welcome we've received in Stroud, since opening our store at Five Valleys earlier this year.

"I design the majority of the clothes and hand pick the fabrics myself, ensuring superb quality and original designs - I strive to offer the very best to my customers."

The new sister store, which can be found inside the shopping centre opposite the indoor food market, offers a new range of bohemian style clothes all priced at £15, including dresses, tops and skirts as well as men's shirts, children's ponchos and a colourful range of harem pants suitable for both men and women.

Ninety per cent of the clothing in the store is designed by Ashok, then tailored and handmade by his 300 employees based in Rajasthan in India.

Ashok will now be able to employ another 10 tailors in his home village by opening the new Priyanka sister store. The new shop has created three new part-time jobs in Stroud.

Together, the two fashion stores make up 1,911 sq ft of retail space in the centre.

Last, week it was announced that Specsavers will be opening a £650k store in the centre next month.
