Its debut franchised store is its first new location for four years. It measures 2,500 sq ft store in the town’s Queens Square, Joe Browns Bowness will showcase womenswear, menswear and homewares.

The opening is the first franchise store for Joe Browns, which has partnered with retail entrepreneurs Adrian and Julie North.
