A NEW gadget and gift shop is to open in Hereford's Old Market on Tuesday (September 26).

MenKind, which will replace the former Paperchase, describes itself as a retailer 'that’s all about fun, geeking out, embracing your inner child, and being weirder than broccoli-flavoured ice cream.'

It started in 2001 as a gift shop, but has expanded over the years and has numerous sops across the country, including in Hamleys and Selfridges.


Prior to it opening in Hereford, the nearest locations were Cwmbran in Wales, and Cribbs, Bristol.

In pictures shared by Matt Bethell, facilities manager at the Old Market, the shop has a number of funky pop items at two for £25.
