A Weston High Street fashion retailer has undergone refurbishment, and now stocks a wider range of big-name brands.

Walker and Ling has received a fresh lick of paint and new fitting rooms to lure more customers to browse its growing list of products.

Popular brands Joules, White Stuff and Superdry have been added to the store’s range, and the store’s own label First Avenue is going from strength to strength according to its manager Sam Walker.

He said: “I think our customers recognise we have quality and service at a good price, and as an independent we bring something a bit different too.

“I think brands are starting to realise Cribbs Causeway is not the be all and end all of retail, and there are plenty of stores like ours which have customers looking for great clothes at the right price.

“Now all we need is some sunshine and we will be back into Weston’s best time of the year.”
