This is the fourth shop to take on this policy with the group after Kitsch, Baklash and Cow all taking on fur free policies with 'Cow' even having a meeting with their head office discussing the possibility of a fur free policy in their Manchester, Birmingham and Sheffield stores after the protest in Nottingham.
The group will now be stepping up their campaign with Cashe (a children's designer clothes store that unfortunately still sell real fur) now that Vintage Warehouse have taken on this policy.
Cashe in the past have had demonstrations outside their store and have even agreed to sign a fur free pledge with the group, but when protesters met with the manager again she told them she had changed her mind and will take all the fur off the shop floor, but will still sell it on their website or will sell it to customers if they come in and ask for it.
Members of the Campaign for a Fur-Free Nottingham believe that the store obviously still want to make money off the cruel fur trade but do not want the bad publicity that goes along with it. In a recent protest at the store at which an Evening Post photographer was present, protesters noticed that some items of real fur had made their way to the shop floor, but were quickly removed during the protest.
The group was recently approached by the manager of Past and Present, a vintage clothes shop in Nottingham, asking did the group have a display sticker he could put in the window of his store as he never had and never will sell real fur, but understands the importance of vintage shops also taking a stance against fur given, the impact that 'vintage' fashion has had in helping fur make its way back into the market.
Window stickers are now available from the group by simply asking via our email address.
The next demonstration will be at Cashe at 12.30 on Friday 19th February. (42 Pelham Street, Nottingham, NG1 2EG)
