Jewellery retailer Mococo has relocated its Chester store from St Michael’s Row to Foregate Street.
The larger store, in the old National Provincial bank building, increases floor space from 400 sq ft to 1100 sq ft allowing the retailer to stock new brands for the first time, including Michael Kors jewellery, British nature-inspired designer Alex Monroe alongside Spanish fashion favourite Uno de 50 jewellery.
The new brands are in addition to Mococo’s popular designer ranges including Pandora, Thomas Sabo, ChloBo and Clogau.

It’s a very exciting time for us, as a family run business, and we would like to extend our gratitude to our loyal customers as we move into our new store.”
