Always evolving, Pendle Village has, and continues to develop and expand its vast retail offering – creating a vibrant shopping experience enjoyed across the generations.
Refurbishment of this old textile mill, which was built in 1885, has been ongoing and the 120,000 square foot building has displays spreading across three floors, each creatively thought out with attractive room-sets for furniture, sofas, lighting and artwork as well as easily navigated zones for men’s and ladieswear, shoes, fabrics, gifts, toys, kitchenware and a huge collection of interior accessories.
With stock and leading brands constantly being refreshed, family-owned Pendle Village is a complete shopping experience for discerning visitors who enjoy choice as much as recognised quality brands.
The much-loved Tetrad label is a favourite in the furniture department where visitors can discover the very latest collections in country-style room-sets featuring unique accessories including carved wooden bowls, ceramics and industrial-style pendant lighting you won’t find anywhere else. These accessories are just as at home in a rural country cottage as they are in a smart executive property.
Stylish sofas and occasional chairs from long-established companies and upholsterers are made from high-quality materials making them durable additions to your living space. There is also a large collection of dining tables and seating along with oversized mirrors, lamps, chandeliers and statement pieces that really make a home unique.
And, you can’t visit Pendle Village without viewing the extensive collection of fabrics by Musbury – there is a made-to-measure service along with ready-made soft furnishings including an extensive cushion collection for which Pendle Village is renowned!
In a separate area of this characterful former cotton mill, visitors can discover one of the best flooring departments in the region with a selection of hardwood flooring and global brands such as Amtico and Karndean, while in the carpet department, brands include Cormar, Axmister, Brintons and Associated Weavers. If you are on a budget, there are also more than 1,000 top-quality roll ends too!
Pendle Village is also the biggest independent rug retailer in the north having one of the best selections of rugs featuring beautiful hand-made Persian and Oriental rugs – individual pieces that become the focal point to any room.
On the first floor take a stroll through the beautiful gift store featuring everything from unusual scarves and individual jewellery to country-style plaques with quirky quotes. In the ladies’ fashion department is a Bonmarche concession and in the shoes department you will find sought-after brands such as Lunar, Heavenly Feet, Comfort Plus and Dr Keller.
The bed department at Pendle Village features brands such as Sealy, Relyon, Highgrove and stylish, semi-fitted furniture from German manufacturer Rauch.
Outside Pendle Village seating areas overlook the canal and new to the Village is a garden centre stocking a good selection of seasonal plants and shrubs, and with Christmas on the horizon there will also be festive wreaths and trees.
And, when you’ve finished shopping you can’t miss a visit to the Pendle Village tearoom – Chocolate Strawberry – where the menu changes daily and features fresh home-cooked dishes as well as delicious cream teas.
Over the next five years, the expansion of Pendle Village will continue, resulting in one of the largest multi-retail experiences in the region.
