Our History

Helen Winterson started her corner shop business in Hawk Green in 1953 and grew through the `swinging sixties` and the help of her daughters, Val and Judi, to become the flourishing business it is today. It is now owned and run by Judi in a lovely building in the centre of Marple.

Past winners of the Drapers UK Independent Womenswear Retailer of the Year award, Helen Wintersons continues to look to the future whilst retaining the traditional virtues of integrity and service.

A Personal Service

At Helen Winterson we aim to help each customer personally to find the clothes to suit her and her lifestyle. We are unashamedly a ‘service’ business and if that takes time, then so be it.

Our sales staff are not commission based and aim to build long term relationship with their customer.

You can look, feel and try on clothes in our roomy changing rooms and take them home ‘on appro’ if you are not sure or need another opinion.

Equally, if you just want to be left alone to browse, we are very happy to leave you in peace although you may be asked if you need anything (eg a cup of coffee or any help) from time to time.

Stylish clothes for stylish ladies, from the UK, Europe and North America to you via our lovely shop in Marple.
