The 50’s changed and shaped fashion forever as the 50’s moved Britain from the austerity of the 1940’s to the prosperity of the 1960’s. Style and spending was developed. 1950’s glamour arrived and naturally so did Renes, the rest is history!
The first shop was established in 1955 by Irene Newby along with her daughter Pamela and soon to follow Brenda, more shops followed thereafter, finally residing on King Street in Lancaster spanning three floors with a quadruple frontage. Renes adorned the latest fashion and bridalwear in the region. Ask any local girl and you can guarantee Renes is where they bought their wedding dress or first teen outfit. It was so popular during Sale times that a queue formed around the shop before opening time.
