F.Hinds have celebrated a new milestone, with their first store in Scotland opening in Stirling on Thursday 30th November.

The family run jewellers, established in 1856, already boasts 117 stores across England and Wales, and can now be found in the Thistles Shopping Centre in Stirling. The branch saw a lively and successful opening, with a range of popular lines available to shop just in time for Christmas.

Shoppers can browse stunning ranges of jewellery for all budgets including diamonds, gold, and silver, as well as watches and gifts, all displaying timeless elegance and contemporary flair. Customers can even be entered to win a £200 gift card when they shop in the new store and sign up to become a Love Hinds member until Friday 15th December.

The city of Stirling is unique in linking East & West as well as the Highlands & Lowlands and has often been right at the heart of Scottish history. It seems fitting that F.Hinds’ own rich heritage should now play a part in this, especially as the new store’s basement is home to part of the historic town walls!

F.Hinds are renowned for their sparkling customer service and product quality, and have supplied their loyal customers for well over 150 years. The store was opened by Hinds family member and sales director, Jeremy Hinds. Jeremy is the 7th generation of the Hinds family to play an active role in the running of the family business.

Gary Turnbull, Centre Director at Thistles, said, “We’re delighted that F.Hinds chose Thistles, Stirling, to open its first Scottish store. The jewellers is a fantastic addition to the centre and opening just before Christmas it is already proving popular with visitors looking for the perfect gift for loved ones.”

Paul Hinds, Managing Director at F. Hinds commented, “Our journey into the heart of Scotland in Stirling has been a landmark opening for all of us here at F.Hinds. We could not be prouder to open our very first Scottish store in this beautiful and historic city and we were delighted to be able to open our doors so appropriately on St. Andrew’s Day. We invite everyone to pop in to meet our fantastic local team, who will be happy to help you with any recommendations for gifting this Christmas and beyond.”

Paul continues, “We look forward to opening many more stores in Scotland and elsewhere in the UK in the future. It’s an exciting time to be expanding and we’d like to thank our loyal and new customers for their support.”
