Nice ‘n’ Naughty, the award winning UK adult shop chain has today announced the acquisition of a further 5 stores. This will increase the number of Nice ‘n’ Naughty stores from 11 to 16 and extend coverage nationwide, with
branches in England, Scotland & Wales.
The new stores are located in Brighton, Bristol, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow and previously formed part of the Clonezone chain which has recently gone into administration. Nice ‘n’ Naughty takes over the stores on the 1st of February. All 5
will then be refitted, restocked and reopened within 8 weeks in order to minimize the interruption of service to customers whilst the rebranding to Nice ‘n’ Naughty takes place.
Philip Price, currently Nice ‘n’ Naughty’s Regional Manager for Lancashire and West Cheshire, will become Area Manager for the 5 new stores. Philip, a former manager with Clonezone, has over 7 years’ experience within the gay
retail market plus 3 years with Nice ‘n’ Naughty. He plans to use this invaluable expertise within the gay sector, as well as his passion for the retail industry, to ensure that the 5 new stores cater for everybody. As well as ensuring
existing customers find what they’re looking for, new product lines will also be introduced to attract a wider customer base to experience Nice ‘n’ Naughty’s distinctive retail approach.
Philip, a well known personality in Manchester, is also committed to supporting local businesses and charities within each
area. Phillip commented, Since moving to Manchester 11 years ago, I have been actively involved on a personal level to help raise funds for local charities and organisations such as the LGF and George House Trust. Nice ‘n’ Naughty has also
sponsored numerous events in the community, helping to raise funds and awareness, which is something we are passionate about continuing. The support that was given locally by Clonezone prior to their closure will continue through Nice ‘n’
Naughty. In fact, we have already been contacted to sponsor the 4th Annual Camp Awards in Newcastle, which we will be happy to do.
Simon Prescott, Director of Nice ‘n’ Naughty, continued, We have every intention to pick up where Clonezone left off, and will support the local communities 110% in the 5 cities and towns.
