Who we are


A little bit about us.

Jane’s is the trading name of an exceptional retail shop situated on the Strand in Torquay. It is an exceptionally busy store and demand for its merchandise is nationwide. Stock illustrated on our website only represents a fraction of what we offer.

We cater for a wider age group, selling outfits, separates, jewellery, bags, shoes & hair accessories. Our speciality is long dresses, suitable for all occasions, including; cruises, weddings, proms, gala events, summer & Christmas balls. You will find something to suit all occasions.

As an independent business, our dedicated mission is to always have the latest in fashion and unlike many large stores we do not order a season in advance.

We mainly source our merchandise from suppliers and manufacturers as it is made, many of whom are constantly designing and creating new styles. These are immediately available in our shop. Jane’s is owned and run by Steve Thorne and Kara Bridgeman.

Because Torquay is a tourist town we are fortunate to have an ever changing clientele, from which we have built up not only local customers but some who travel hundreds of miles to pay us repeat visits.

Many have suggested a Jane’s website in order that they could peruse our stock and purchase on-line. Please view our shop to see what is available. 

As an independent high street retailer, we consider personal service to be paramount. All our staff are highly trained, with an emphasis on courtesy and satisfying customers requirements. They will always be more than happy to assist you in any way whatsoever.
