Rugby’s ‘independent quarter’ has been bolstered by the opening of a lingerie shop in Regent Street.

Purple Rose is owned by Anne and Martin Cole, who also own Klickers Hair Salon at 35 Regent Street. The lingerie store will be run by Anne while Martin will look after his clientele at Klickers

Anne said: “We saw a need for this type of store in Rugby as ladies have to travel out of town for their lingerie as I myself have experienced.

“We are very pleased with how the store looks and feels – we have a free fitting service and we will be able to cater for all sizes.

Customers can browse with a glass of Prosecco or orange juice, and the shop will stock ranges including Fantasie, Freya, Lepel, Charnos, Passionata Chantelle and Triumph.

Men’s Sloggi underwear is also stocked and the shop has a small range of nightwear will add to the items on sale with hold-ups, tights and swimwear over the coming months.

Anne added: “This is an exciting time, we are very much looking forward to the future of Purple Rose.”
