Owner Simon Brown puts much of this success down to a growing trend towards pre-owned and vintage jewellery and observes “as well as enjoying an exemption from VAT, second hand jewellery is favoured for being a unique and timeless purchase”
The opening of branches in Mexborough, Crossgates and Barnsley marked a welcome return to the trade for Simon Brown who comes from a long and distinguished line of Yorkshire Jewellers and Pawnbrokers. Simon comments, “Despite difficult trading conditions it’s been a great first year with sales well ahead of expectation and we’re really appreciative of the custom and support shown by the Mexborough, Crossgates and Barnsley communities”
Browns employs 19 staff at three branches across the region, has a growing internet business and is one of the few remaining businesses working in the time honoured tradition with in-house Craft Jewellers and Goldsmiths as well as offering a cash for gold service http://www.brownspawnbrokers.co.uk/
From Wednesday 14th December until Christmas Eve; Simon and the team will be treating all customers at each of the three branches to a famous ‘Wilsons’ pork pie, a glass of fizz and the opportunity to win an early Christmas present - a lucky dip for a diamond pendant.
