Merch concept store St George's, Bermuda

Merch, a new concept store located on the ground floor of Stiles House, King’s Square in St George's, had its soft opening during the annual National Trust Walkabout on December 1.

The store will carry a variety of items that are intended to cater both to the local population of Bermuda and its visitors alike. The mandate of the store will be to carry a number of unique and interesting items that have been sourced internationally and regionally including men’s and women’s clothing and accessories, jewellery and gift items. Merch is interested in the promotion of local talent and will also carry items by local designers and creatives that are not sold anywhere else on the island. In this regard, they are presently the sole retailer of clothing and accessories by Art Pays Me, the line by Bermudian graphic designer Duane Jones who now lives and works in Halifax, Canada.

Setting up the shop in the Town of St George was no accident. The creative team behind Merch had long been looking for ideal premises at various locations Island-wide. They eventually settled on the bright and airy location on the corner of King’s Square. Stiles House, which was once variously a private home, a hotel and even a tavern, was thought to be the best option as the location was the ideal juxtaposition of stately, historic building with the modern, spare feel of the interior which is designed to show off, rather than compete with, the products that will be carried.

Merch is open in the run up to Christmas although some minor work still continues on the outfit of the interior. The store will have its official opening in the Spring of 2018.
