A Liverpool store is celebrating a surge in sunglasses sales thanks to a British heatwave that shows no signs of slowing down.

Fashion retailer Jessie & Co, which is based in Prescot, has noted sales of its unique sunglasses range sky-rocket in recent weeks and has welcomed visitors from as far as Ireland to shop the quirky eyewear collection.

In line with its recent birthday celebrations, Jessie & Co has unveiled a brand refresh which has included the introduction of an online shopping portal at

Louise added: “Whilst we love seeing our customers face to face as they join us in store for their purchases, we have also recently unveiled a new online store whereby customers from throughout the UK can shop quickly and easily and we are noticing similar trends in sunglasses sales through our e-shop, too.”
