Get your 'retro' on with Shrewsbury musical theatre company's latest venture; 'Vintro Shrews

Directors of Get Your Wigle On next week turn their attention to a different spotlight, with the opening of Shropshire's newest vintage and retro store, 'Vintro Shrewsbury.'

The shop, opening Tuesday 17th February, will house hand-picked vintage and retro clothing, accessories and gifts from the fifties to the nineties at affordable prices to suit all styles and sizes.

Following Get Your Wigle On's move to a new studio in the heart of Shrewsbury town centre last spring, the team can't wait to open its sister business just around the corner, at 12 Mardol. Owners of Vintro Shrewsbury, Ross Wigley and James Broxton, have directed the local theatre company for the last three years- with a busy and varied schedule of performance opportunities and musical theatre classes for all ages, working closely with Theatre Severn and within the local community.

Their love for costuming musical productions from 'Grease' to 'Les Miserables' has been a great stepping stone to the opening of the shop, with their theatrical flair represented in specialist area for stage wear and musical memorabilia. The vintage and retro trends are becoming more and more popular all over the country, with fashion fans of all ages and backgrounds sporting timeless items of clothing. Vintro Shrewsbury looks forward to offering affordable and accessible fashion to the Shropshire shopper, alongside regular shopping events, parties and pop up sales.

James Broxton says 'We're proud and excited to join the fantastic selection of independent shops in the town centre, and are committed to providing a friendly and fun shopping experience for locals and visitors to the town. It's great to be able to bring something a little different to the Shrewsbury streets and we're excited to develop the Get Your Wigle On brand within the town.'

Co-Owner and Director Ross has found 'working towards our upcoming production 'Footloose' at Theatre Severn has meant we've all enjoyed turning our attention to the crazy and colourful costumes of the eighties, and it's great to be able to use our experience of finding the perfect outfits for the stage with our new venture.'

Shoppers in Shrewsbury can visit Vintro Shrewsbury from 9-5.30pm Monday to Saturday and any enquiries can be sent to [email protected]
