Swarovski Opening Times And Store Locations

As already mentioned, the company is a global operator with many stores around the world. In the UK, they have more than 100 stores evenly distributed across more than 70 cities and major towns. They can be found in high streets, shopping centres and shopping precincts. This means some cities with higher populations have access to more than one store in their local vicinity. Residents of London, Glasgow and Manchester have the most Swarovski establishments nearby. Branches are easily recognisable due to the company’s branding and in particular their logo. Their branches display the company logo of a black swan above the company name on a white background.

Most of their establishments have similar opening times. Swarovski opening times range between 9am and 5.30pm between Monday and Friday. On the weekends, their opening hours change slightly. On Saturdays, they are open slightly longer by opening at the same time but closing 30 minutes later at 6pm. On Sundays, Swarovski opening times are reduced to 11am to 5pm. Naturally, some branches may use different business hours due to being set in a busier location such as shopping centres that have late-night shopping events. Their opening hours may also change on New Year's Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Christmas, Boxing Day and bank holidays. It is always best to check a specific Swarovski store’s opening times on these days and in general by using the branch locator found at opening-times.co.uk.

A Brief History

Daniel Swarovski started an apprenticeship at his father’s glass cutting factory as a young boy. By 1892, he had invented and patented a machine that would cut glass using electric power. Three years later he and two other men established the business in Austria. The inventive genes remained in the family as Mr. Swarovski’s son, Wilhelm, invented a custom pair of binoculars. This invention became the launch of Swarovski’s successful subsidiary, Swarovski Optik. The company has grown into other countries gradually and is now a well-known crystal jeweller in the UK and on an international stage.
