Neil & Barker was established in 1964 as a family jewellery business, by the Sexton family. Since 1994, Neil & Barker has been managed by Allison and Michael Aldridge - Allison being the daughter of the founder. Michael has been actively managing the business with Allison and brings management experience to the company, having held senior marketing positions in retail management with Selfridges and the John Lewis Partnership.
The store is located in the heart of the busy pedestrianised shopping precinct of Widnes and benefits from multiple window displays and has a Pandora “shop-in-shop”.
The company’s philosophy is to provide quality products to the people of Widnes and surrounding areas. With long serving staff, who are well trained to give their customer base the best possible advice, Neil & Barker enjoys continuous growth and brings the latest in jewellery fashion trends to the area.
In the busy town of Widnes, the Neil & Barker product ranges have intense exposure to a large customer base. The store is a “known name”, having been resident in the town centre for 50 years.
Allison and Michael are supported by a team of long serving and dedicated staff, all of whom are required to acquire NAJ qualifications. They are very active in the CMJ and the NAG, and Allison’s parents were founder members of the CMJ.
