Launch of In-Store Website Browsing and Buying

Bringing together traditional writing instruments with the latest modern technology The Pen Shop continues to stay ahead of the most recent market trends. At The Pen Shop we are excited to announce the launch of in-store website browsing and buying via iPads in our Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield and London Oxford Street stores.

Leeds Store

The option of buying in store increases customer convenience offering flexibility of free UK delivery to work, home or other addresses for example if the order is for a gift. The customer also doesn’t have to wait for gift wrapping or engraving as they can simply have it delivered to them instead.

The iPads in our stores will help promote a wider range of products that are currently not available in-store such as Online Exclusive ranges including Diplomat, Troika and Visconti.

We have also modified our website for the in-store iPads with several special features now available. While browsing the iPad customers can use their smartphone to take a picture of a QR code on any product page to then view on their phone at a later date. They can also email product details to any email address with a message, perfect for dropping ‘subtle’ ideas for Christmas presents.

The option of in-store browsing and buying through iPads will be deployed in all our stores in the New Year.


New Northern Flagship Store

Here at The Pen Shop we are pleased to announce the opening of a new northern flagship store in Leeds in the newly built Trinity Centre.

Our grand opening is at 10am on Thursday 21st March. We’re expecting to celebrate in style and invite you all to come and join in the fun. Meet Cinderella, a local author and a qualified Graphologist to give analysis of your handwriting. You will also be in with a chance of receiving an exclusive Pen Shop goodie bag as well as special offers for our new Leeds store.

Trinity Leeds will be the most important city-centre development of recent times. The 1 million sq ft scheme will bring together the best of the UK high street, aspiring brands and international retailers.

Leeds is the UK’s largest financial centre outside of London and is the third largest city in the country. It is also considered one of the UK’s best shopping destinations being dubbed the Knightsbridge of the North.

To make life easier, Trinity Leeds has been designed to be the most digitally advanced shopping destination in the UK with free wi-fi, assistants on hand with internet-connected iPads, and large video walls that offer fun and futuristic experiences via gesture recognition. Not only this, Trinity Leeds will have a mobile app that allows you to personalise your experience and a link with Google which allows you to search for items on sale in the centre.

Lighting in the sweeping glass dome roof of the three-storey shopping quarter can be programmed to create different shapes and auroras for visitors when late-night shopping.

Lying in the heart of Leeds City Centre, Trinity Leeds is easily accessible by all modes of transport.

When finished, the development will be a 1,000,000 sq ft (92,900 sq m) centre and will have 120 shops and restaurants bordered by Briggate, Albion Street and Boar Lane.
