We are delighted to announce we are opening our 20th shop in St Pancras International railway station on Monday 9th May.
Set within one of the most famous Victorian buildings in London, the flagship shop is intended to provide a convenient way for shoppers and commuters to browse products and collect orders reserved online.
The shop, which is open from 7.30am to 9pm Monday to Saturday and 9am to 7pm on Sundays, will stock a full range of luxury brands including Montblanc, Chopard, Caran d’Ache and Graf von Faber-Castell and premium brands Parker, Waterman, Cross, Lamy and our own brand, Kingsley.
Situated alongside Fortnum & Mason and Jo Malone, customers can reserve products online and pick them up on their way home from work the same day. We also hope to appeal to tourists and holiday-makers using the Eurostar.
The shop opens almost a year to the day The Pen Shop underwent a management buyout after our three directors purchased the group and its retail outlets in May 2015 from the Allan family for an undisclosed amount.
The MBO, which transferred ownership from the Allan family shareholders to the newly-formed Fountain Group, moved the business to a new stage in the development of its successful omni-channel shop operation and wholesale business.
The Pen Shop managing director, Colin McClymont, says: “It has been an exciting year for The Pen Shop and the opening of the new St Pancras shop firmly marks the beginning of the next stage in The Pen Shop’s history.
“Our customers show us that they want different ways to shop that are most convenient for them and this has turned bustling transport terminals into real retail destinations. The Pen Shop St Pancras is our latest shop that will combine a convenient shopping location with our online reserve and collect service to meet our customers’ evolving needs and serve the station’s travellers.”
The shop’s opening coincides with the launch of Marvel’s latest film Captain America: Civil War and Cross’ new range of Marvel Cross Century and Cross Tech pens. To celebrate, Marvel’s famous superheroes Captain America and Iron Man will be available for photographs all around St Pancras on Monday 9th May.
