The managing director of Lily Arkwright, Philip Dawson, expressed his excitement about the new showroom: “We’re really thrilled to launch our Birmingham Showroom, it’s been an integral part of our 5 year growth agenda as we continue our expansion plans. Birmingham is a city like no other, with such an amazing retail scene and we’re really proud and honoured to be able to service our Birmingham clients”.

The Mailbox is a  mixed-use development that houses luxury retail, leisure, and office spaces, as well as the BBC Birmingham studios. The opening of Lily Arkwright comes at a time when many high street shops in Birmingham are struggling to survive as a shift to online shopping and the ongoing cost of living crisis has hit retailers. 

According to Local Data Company, there were 1,024 shop closures in the West Midlands last year, among the highest in the country. These include everything from retail and restaurants, to cafes, banks and gyms, some of the notable closures include Debenhams, New look, and several banks.

However, there has been some good news for Birmingham lately, with new stores opening in the Bullring & Grand Central, another popular retail and leisure destination in the city. Visitors to Bullring & Grand Central can shop and explore 12 new shiny stores, including Nike Rise, Marks & Spencer, Pull&Bear, Bershka, and Lane.
