A FASHION retailer is bucking the trend by undergoing an expansion.

Robinsons of Bawtry has taken on a number of new staff at a time when many businesses are shrinking because of the ecnomic downturn.

The growth copmes at a time when the boutique is celebrating its silver jubilee.

It has launched its e-commerce website www.robinsonsofbawtry.com which supports the retail outlet of the same name located in the heart the picturesque market town.

The new site has led to an increase in staff to support the new operation.

Russell Jones, owner of Robinsons based in South Parade, said: “We are pleased to have had to employ new staff to consolidate our growth this year and are delighted to welcome Bradley Hayes, designer, Josie-Marie our resident fashion blog writer who will keep you up to date with all the latest trends and advise on how to create the perfect look, Adrian Torr in our menswear department and Lauren Glass in Ladieswear,”

“Our website was necessary to replicate changing shopping trends and has been a huge success, placing Robinsons as one of the regions premier suppliers of designer fashion.”

Robinsons is also staging its annual charity fashion show at The China Rose restaurant in Bawtry on October 16. Originally launched by previous owner Tony Robinson the show has raised more than £200,000 for Yorkshire Cancer Research.
