Wave Jewellery has announced that it will close two of its stores with immediate effect, holding a £1.35 million clearance sale in a bid to urgently sell off its watch and jewellery stock.
In a post made on its Facebook page yesterday afternoon, the retailer ran an open invitation to attend the sale, penned by its director Paul Henderson. He states that Wave’s Bowness on Windemere and Lancaster stores are closing, while its shops in Manchester and Kendal are set to undergo a major refurbishment.
The stores are presently closed while Wave prepares stock for the million-pound sale, with plans to clear all four stores of stock in what it has dubbed "the greatest jewellery sale ever seen in the area".
Paul Henderson wrote in post: "It’s been a privilege to serve so many special customers and all the good people of the region since we founded Wave back in 2001, and we thank you for your valued custom. Now the decision has been made to close down the Bowness and Lancaster stores, and to refurbish and upgrade the Kendal and Manchester stores. We must clear all stores without delay so that this massive project can commence."
The retailer is offering two days of private sales for customers who bring along the invitation posted on Facebook, bearing the above statement.
The watches that the retailer is selling off are from brands including Certina, Swatch, TW Steel, Bell & Ross, Tissot and Gucci.
Additionally, among the jewellery brands going on sale are Shaun Leane, Trollbeads, Rachel Galley, So Jewellery, Unique Jewelry, Marco Bicego and Bobby White London.
