The Darwin team are pleased to announce that independent store RKM Wools, which was previously located on Roushill for nearly forty-five years, has now opened inside The Collective on the ground floor of The Darwin.


RKM Wools is a Shrewsbury business which has been operating in the town since 1969. Juliet & Nigel run this celebrated specialist hand knitting yarn store, which has become a very important asset to the town. As well as a great selection of yarn, RKM also supply a range of haberdashery, buttons, knitting patterns and a wide array of knitting accessories.


Juliet & Nigel have chosen to relocate to The Darwin given its central location, mix of independent and national brands and the support they will have from the centre’s management team. They are excited to operate in The Collective amongst other local businesses, in a space where everyone helps one another.


The Darwin proudly supports independent brands and has helped local businesses open stores by offering them affordable and flexible leasing terms. The Collective has become a prominent destination in Shrewsbury for people looking for something special.
