A YOUNG entrepreneur from Herefordshire has said moving to a new shop in the city has been a huge learning curve but is a good thing for his business.

Marshall Steadman, 20, is the founder of Gemz Garms, a second-hand vintage designer shop.

He said his mission is to make designer clothing more affordable for Herefordshire, having been selling products online for two years.


In December, he opened a shop in Hereford Butter Market, in High Town, but has now moved the short distance to Widemarsh Street.

Mr Steadman said the move will help him achieve his goals.

"Moving into the new shop has been a great learning experience that's needed a lot of hard work to get to where it currently is," he said.

Hereford Times:

"It's very exciting as it's allowed us to sell online again which is a huge factor to success in this industry. 

"There are now hundreds of items in our store as well as new items coming to our rails daily.

"We're excited as this is a huge step for us and a big stepping stone to what we have planned in the future."


As part of the move, he is doing a £100 store credit giveaway on his Instagram @gemzgarms.

When opening the shop in the Butter Market, Mr Steadman said: " "I'm looking to build my brand and establish my company as part of the city very quickly.

"I'm a young entrepreneur with a huge ambition to bring something unique to the city and feel as if I can offer a lot of value to my hometown."
