A new jewel in the crown
As Lister Horsfall unveil their stunning new showroom in Ilkley, beyond pays a visit and discovers a shopping experience like no other.
E ver since Lister Horsfall’s arrival in Ilkley in 1974, the family-owned business has been committed to bringing only the very finest jewellery and highest quality swiss-watches to its customers.
Now, 45 years on, the business has committed further to its local Ilkley community by undergoing an extensive showroom expansion and refurbishment, which has seen the store quadruple in size.
Previously on the corner of Brook Street and The Grove this extensive and luxurious fit out sees the company’s entrance move onto the coveted Grove and a brand new entrance in what was previously William H Brown.
Now with an abundance of space, the showroom features brand-focussed showcasing areas, a relaxing and inviting customer environment, private meeting areas and its very own hospitality bar and event space.
Speaking about the expansion, Nick Horsfall – the fourth generation of the family dynasty – said: “It’s a really exciting time for Lister Horsfall in Ilkley as we have been able to achieve a long-held dream of expanding our showroom. We now feel we have space to provide an enhanced customer experience with the addition of our lounge and hospitality area. We are exceptionally happy with the new showroom and are looking forward to showing it to our existing and future clients.”
Talking about the inspiration for the stunning new store, which features a stunning drop tear chandlier from the upper floor down to the ground floor, Nick added: “We have tried to develop a brand identity for our stores over the last few years which is in keeping with our history as a county jeweller with a contemporary twist. It was important that we created an inviting and luxurious environment where customers felt at ease to relax and enjoy the moment.
“We pride ourselves on our friendly and approachable style, it is something that we are known for, and our long-standing client relationships are testament to that. We always encourage our customers to take their time in choosing jewellery or a watch, to enjoy the hospitality and treat it as an occasion – our Ilkley shop will now allow customers an even greater shopping experience in the most inviting, spacious and luxurious environment.”
Since 1902, the Horsfall family has been welcoming customers to Lister Horsfall. Now in its fourth generation, it remains an independent, family-owned business serving the Calderdale and Ilkley areas.
As jewellers of distinction, they stock only the most coveted and discerning brands including Rolex, Tudor, Breitling, Omega, Fope, Messika and Diamond by Appointment, and offer customers products and service levels that are second-to-none.
