Fetch is the new gay lifestyle store taking Clapham by storm! There’s everything a metropolitan homo could need in their little den of delights; toys, lubes, looks and more! We caught up with their kind proprietor, Nigel, for the scoop on what to expect from Fetch in the future.
Hi Nigel, tell us a little bit about yourself!
Haha the most feared question in any interview… well I’ve worked in retail my entire career, initially spending 27 years at WHSmith before moving into this industry, so not that much of a change! I’ve always wanted to be involved in something I was passionate about and love the freedom that smaller, less corporate businesses bring to retail. They allow you to be yourself and put your own heart and spirit into what you do, that’s what excites me and is what FETCH is about. I live with and work with my best friend and business partner, Mark, which makes every single day fun. Not many people can say that! We eat, breath and sleep FETCH at the moment so don’t have a lot of time for much else, but as long as I’m surrounded by my family and friends that’s enough for now, after all they’re the people that make life worth living.
Describe Fetch in five words
Fashion, Fetish, Fun, Fresh, For Everyone (sorry I cheated!)
How have things been going at Fetch since your fabulous store opening in January?
We’ve been overwhelmed by the response we’ve had to the store, from customers, suppliers and the industry in general. A store like FETCH has been long overdue in Clapham and we are so happy to be getting such welcoming, positive feedback on a daily basis. We already feel very much a part of the community and are proud to call Clapham our home. Since opening we’ve already launched our Triton Fetish Range of leather harnesses and jocks along with our stunning collection of medical grade stainless steel cock rings, ball stretchers, penis plugs and wands, glans rings and speculums to name but a few. There’s still more to come.
Tell us about the new Fetch website and delivery service!
It’s taken us a little longer than we had hoped to get up and running online, but it’s been worth it. We wanted the site to be an extension of the store. Easy to shop and find your way around, clean, simple, exciting and FULL of amazing product that appeals to the massive spectrum of the our diverse community. We have worked hard promoting the FETCH brand on social media and through promotional work with clubs, bars, magazines and events around London.
Now we need to get the message of the FETCH brand further afield, across the UK, Europe and the Rest of the World. Like you guys have said before…we are making FETCH happen.
Our delivery options put customers at the heart of what we do, whether it’s click and collect in-store or tracked second class delivery on all orders as standard, which is free when you spend over £25. If you want it faster, then we can do that too, express DPD next working day delivery on UK orders placed before 4pm and it’s FREE too when you spend over £100.
We will also be launching a FETCH first in delivery options very soon, but we’ll have to keep you waiting just a little longer with the details on that one. Trust us, it will be worth the wait #GoFetch.
Any exciting events or products coming to the store soon?
So many events coming up. We’re sponsoring Hardon in June which is always great fun, then we have the Clapham Street Party at the end of June which we are really excited for, especially on our home turf. Then we head into London Pride where we’ll be taking FETCH on the road, we’ll see everybody there. Then straight into Fetish Week London which is probably going to be the highlight of this year, as we have events lined up almost every day with LOTS of new and exclusive product hitting the store and website making sure everybody gets kitted out in the right gear for them.
Product wise there’s always something new and fresh at FETCH and we are just finalising the details on our FETCH fashion range which will also be out in time for Fetish Week. I’m exhausted just thinking about it all. Never miss out by following us @fetchshoplondon or visit the website at www.fetchshop.co.uk to sign up to our mailing list and keep up to date.
Anything else we need to know?
We really just want to say thank you to everybody for their amazing support, without you guys we wouldn’t be here and every day we are grateful for having the chance to do what we love.
