Luxury watch retailer David M. Robinson will now open its Manchester branch on Sundays in response to demand from customers for additional weekend shopping hours.
The store was previously closed on Sundays but will now trade between 11am and 5pm.
The six David M. Robinson stores are now split 50-50 with regards to Sunday trading. The Manchester, London and Liverpool branches now open on Sundays but its Southport, Chester and Altrincham shops will continue to close on Sundays.
David M. Robinson Manchester store manager Penny Galloway said that she expects to see an increased trade from couples shopping on Sundays.
The Manchester store opened a dedicated Rolex salon in November and Galloway said that five months in, the space is delivering results.
She said: "We have seen a marked rise in demand for Rolex since the completion of our Rolex space in Manchester."
The David M. Robinson store in Manchester is located in the city’s St Annes Square and has the first Rolex boutique in the city.
