"When we partner with other brands we always ask them two key questions: ‘How do they treat their staff and what are they doing for the planet?’ Personally, I cannot expect our customers to believe in the brands we stock if I don't believe in them myself. That's key to the direction we want to take our store. We have to look in the mirror and ask ourselves everyday: ‘What are our values? Are we doing enough to change things for the better’." Hamish Thomas, Owner Operator.
Thomas’s Marlborough is a curated fashion and lifestyle store based at the Top of the South. We are also immensely proud to be both a family owned business and one of the largest stockists of New Zealand brands in the country for well over 100 years.
Ever since 1912 when John and Kathleen Thomas courageously pioneered a vision for a fashion and apparel department store in Marlborough, our legendary little shop has been a much beloved part of the New Zealand fashion landscape. And a famous local hangout in our community.
The key to our long term success? We take pride our immensely personal approach to your shopping experience. We want you to feel a part of our world, and our story.
Knowing that you are engaging with brands that have made a substitutional effort towards making this world a better place for all of us is an enormously important part of who we are here at Thomas’s:
That’s why, when we carefully choose our products we are ensuring three key things:
a) The highest quality brands that are built to last you.
b) Ethically made products – the brand is doing its best to make the world a better place for humans and the environment.
c) Also, when you buy with us you are supporting local. And every year, a fair bit of our pocket change goes towards supporting charities and events in our awesome little region.
At Thomas’s you can be sure that you are getting a truly phenomenal and personalized shopping experience. All we want is to hear you say: I love my (insert totally fabulously delicious item here) from Thomas’s Marlborough.
Go on – be a part of our story.
