At Slaters we are dedicated to making your shopping experience as easy and convenient as 
possible. To assist you during your shopping, we have brought together some frequently asked 
questions and answers.

  • About Us

    • What makes Slater Menswear unique?

      We’re one step above the High Street
      Can we let you into a little secret? We don’t have main High Street stores. There, we’ve finally said it. There is a good reason to this decision – we don’t want to pay extortionate rents and then have to pass on the costs to our customers. From day one we’ve kept pricing low to offer great value and that remains at the heart of our philosophy today. That’s why you’ll always find Slater Menswear stores just off the beaten track, one floor up, overlooking the bustling throng below.

      We value people above all else
      We’re proud to say that our people make us special... we all genuinely care about our customers. 
      Don’t take our word for it, come in to our stores and see for yourself. We will make your shopping an enjoyable experience.

      We want you to enjoy shopping with us
      We don’t just think about your money. We also think about what you might need. We offer a one stop shop – from shoes to hats, we’ve got it all. We’ve also got the people to help you when you need it; we all need a bit of encouragement when choosing a new look. We work hard to offer our customers a unique shopping experience that delivers them what they want, whatever size, whatever budget, with advice when they need it.

      We want to get better at what we do
      We never have a ‘job done’ mentality. We’re only as good as our last sale. We like you to challenge us. And we really like you to return, again and again. We know that we can always improve but we will never lose sight of what we’re good at. Change happens but we don’t change for the sake of it; we evolve to make our service better for our customers.

      This isn’t another marketing pitch; we are genuinely committed to our values and we are what we say we are. We are truly passionate about our products and our people. But of course, seeing is believing. Come in and experience Slaters service for yourself.
