Hollywood Exports vintage clothing store on track to open in East Lancashire by April 12
A brand new vintage clothing store is on track to open in the heart of East Lancashire. At the beginning of March, Matthew Taylor, who owns and runs Hollywood Exports in Preston, said he was looking to open a second store in his hometown of Clitheroe, in order to revive the ‘effectively dead’ high street.
Hollywood Exports is coming to Clitheroe The 39-year-old believes the town has too many ‘service shops’, and after receiving an overwhelmingly positive response on social media to the idea of introducing a vintage clothes store to Clitheroe, in less than a month, the antique dealer and dad-of-one has found a suitable premise, and is aiming to have the shop open in time for when lockdown restrictions are eased again.
Antique dealer to bring vintage Americana to streets of Clitheroe in bid to revive ‘dead’ high street Mr Taylor, who also runs the Langden Grill Food Truck, said: “We are currently renovating the shop to give it that ‘Hollywood’ feel, and are sourcing more stock ready for when we open. “It’s all very exciting.”

Mr Taylor was adamant about finding a suitable unit for his second Hollywood Exports store, and is determined to have it ready for when all non-essential shops are permitted to open again on April 12, adding: “April 12 is the catalyst really and we are trying our best and pushing as hard as we can to get it ready for that date. “We are expanding the online side of things too and have taken on a new member of staff to help with that, and will probably be looking to employ three or four weekend staff. “It’s going to be a good year I think, I can feel it, the high street is going to bounce back really well.”

Renovations to the two storey shop, at 23 King Street in Clitheroe, are ongoing, but Mr Taylor said if any budding graffiti artists would like to practice their work on the interior walls, then they should get in touch. He said: “They can come and show us what they can do and even leave their ‘tag’ too, so there’s something permanent to represent them.”
Hollywood Exports is coming to Clitheroe Hollywood Exports Vintage Kilo Store will occupy the old Stork and Alphabet children’s clothes shop and will bring vintage Americana apparel to the Ribble Valley.
