On Friday 2nd November Theo opened a brand new Ryman store on King’s Road, London. Nestled among the big brands on one of the most iconic streets in London, it is the perfect location for a store. The store has become part of the over 200 other Ryman stores across the UK
At 1.30pm Theo cut the ribbon to officially open the store. Colleagues, members of the public and local journalists had all gathered to help celebrate the official opening and to hear Theo talk about the brand and its journey throughout the years. Theo also spoke about how important the high street was to the community and the fantastic location for the store. The first 50 people to visit the store got themselves an exclusive goodie bag filled with Ryman product!
Commenting at the opening Theo said:
“I’m delighted to officially open the Ryman store on the Kings Road today. We’re a high street business supported by a fantastic online service and as a community-led retailer, this is a perfect location. It’s been a pleasure to hear from our customers, in person, just how much they value Ryman, and that’s all about remaining relevant and accessible to our customers. The new store is a credit to our colleagues who’ve done a fantastic job.”
After the official opening, Theo spoke to a few local journalists about the prime location, Ryman and the state of the UK high street. With Ryman celebrating its 125th year in business this year, today was a fantastic example of how the business is still just as passionate about stationery as Henry J Ryman was on that very first day in Great Portland Street in 1893.
