About us

Our story began in 1964 when a young and ambitious Kevin Bowens saw an opportunity, took a chance and decided to open his own clothing store in Bandon, West Cork. He rented for some time before buying a premises on South Main Street, where the shop would go through many face lifts and extensions throughout the years! Soon after, Kevin married and he and his wife Della quickly settled into life running their own business.

They would go on to having four children, Maria, Alan , Aoife and Kevin. Kevin with the help of wonderful staff continued to expand and develop the business, working extremely hard to do so, gaining many loyal customers and friends along the way, before handing the reigns over to his youngest, Kevin in 2007.

Kevin began his career facing challenging times through recession and major flooding, which led to a massive refurbishment in 2010. Thanks to community support, our many many customers and committed staff, this family run business has evolved through the times, now with the option of online shopping and serves as an important fashion hub for the people of Cork and beyond.

At the core of our business is something Kevin Snr became well known for and instilled in us all, providing the customer with the best service possible. We pride ourselves in our customer care and along with our knowledgeable friendly staff and top fashion labels, we offer an excellent shopping experience. Kevin, his wife Bianca and their 3 boys, Ezra, Jai and Luca and all the staff look forward to the future with you all!
