Sanders Hirewear opens flexible hours across 5 days each week, and so all enquiries and fittings are held by appointment, which can be arranged via the contacts page.

⁠⁠These are currently available: Monday 2pm - 7pm, Wednesday - Saturday 9.30am until 5pm. Evening  appointments on some Wednesdays and Thursdays are also available by arrangement with Helen.

Proud to be continuing a legacy:

Premier Clothiers 1 Mr George Cornelius Sanders opened his first Gentleman's Outfitters in Eastwood, Premier Clothiers, in May 1937, in the building that is currently the Eastwood Post Office. Cornelius changed the name of the business to Sanders Menswear and moved to larger premises on 122 Nottingham Road in 1960, then in 1970, he passed control of the business to his son Brian, who in turn passed control to his son Robert in 1993.

Helen Kirk first joined the Sanders Company as a part-time retail assistant in September 2002, while studying for her Open University degree. After graduating in 2008, she began working with the company full time, moving into the hire department in 2010. In 2020, Helen stepped into the role of Hire Manager, running the department remotely throughout the recent pandemic.
