The stores are located in the Grafton Centre in Cambridge, Bracknell, Torquay, Imperial Wharf, Harbourside Bristol, Newtownards, Trowbridge, Letchworth, Huntingdon, Marlborough, Braintree, Caversham, Balham, Palmers Green, Colmore Row, Evesham. Tewkesbury. Whitley Bay. Newcastle-under-Lyme, Biggin Hill, Sudbury, Ripon, Melton Mowbray, Honiton, Market Harborough and main stores at Valley Park in Croydon and Woking.
