Peacocks Stores is on Abbey Walk, Robert Street which is next to Wilkinson's. Peacocks are part of a national chain that also own bonmarche. Peacocks arrived in Selby when the new shopping area opend in the 1990's adding their department store look. The Selby branch has become quite sucessful with little in their way of competition for the up-to-the fashion low price trends. We have the New Look store in Selby but they are significally more expensive. As far as products, they cater for men, women and children, in clothing, shoes, Underwear, sleep wear and accessories. I tend to buy quite a few pair of jeans there that start from about £5 and wash well! Peacocks are postioned well, in a busy walk-way with Wilkinsons and now the new Sainsbury's store next to them. Although we are now entereing difficult financial times, I think more discerning customers are being savvy with their money and will seek out stores like Peacocks that are offering a one-stop-shop for fashion on the cheap.
Good old Peacocks its like an expensive Primark. Since it came to Selby a few years ago it has done well, the combination of cheap clothing and attempts to keep up with the latest fashions has ensured its a winner on the tight old yorkshiremen of Selby (me included).
As mentioned, the prices are great and although the mens section is much smaller compared to the ladies it does still seem to ram in a massive amount of clothes. I have to say 90% of it isn't to my tastes at all and some looks a little cheap (yeah i know they are cheap but doesn't mean they have to look it!) but if you search hard enough you will find something you like i'm sure.
The staff are a miserable bunch on the whole and are usually found behind the till but for a store like this you don't expect exceptional service so they do the job nicely.
All in a all a good shop for Selby and some nice bargains to be had if you look hard enough.
