Banks Lyon Expand to Kendal

News and Events


New Store at: 33 Market Place, Kendal, LA9 4TP

It is 32 years since Rodney Banks Lyon unveiled his Lancaster-based independent jewellers, and after decades of serving the people of Lancashire, Banks Lyon have begun a new venture in Cumbria.

The family run jewellers, who boast an impressive portfolio of luxury watches and jewellery lines in their flagship Lancaster branch, have launched a second store in Kendal.

The businesses new shop is located in a prime location at 33 Market Place, and opened in May this year. The Banks Lyon family have issued an invitation for all to pop in and celebrate. This could be over a cool glass of champagne, locally sourced ale or a classic cup of tea or coffee.

In 2015, the independent jewellers welcomed the second-generation of the family into the business, with Rodney and Jasmin’s daughter, Maxine, and husband Alexander joining the team.

Maxine Banks Lyon, Marketing Director for Banks Lyon Jewellers, felt the decision came as a natural progression for the company going forward.

“It is an incredibly exciting and proud time for me and my family and we are thoroughly looking forward to the new venture.”

She said: “We want to get closer and be more convenient to our customers in Cumbria. We feel we can offer something that isn’t currently available in the area.”

The Kendal showroom will play host to a range of prestigious Swiss watches from TAG Heuer, Longines, Tissot and Gucci, along with the aviation themed British watchmakers, Bremont.

They will also stock a range of fine jewellery and diamonds, as well as worldwide luxury names Marco Bicego, Fope & Messika. Together with these, customers will find fashion jewellery lines, by Astley Clarke and Georg Jensen on offer.

Visitors to the Kendal-based jeweller can assume the same exceptional level of customer service they’ve come to assume from the Banks Lyon brand over the decades.

The Banks Lyon team invite everyone to come and celebrate the Kendal showroom opening.
