Retail and leisure destination Derbion is welcoming a new independent brand after announcing the winner of its Hatch competition.

Hatch offers small business owners the opportunity to take their brand to the next level and open a store within the centre.

The prize includes a store in Derbion for a period of six weeks, completely rent free.

After launching this year’s competition in February, Derbion has now announced the winner – Derby-based hair replacement specialist The Hair Repair Club.

The business offers non-surgical hair replacement systems, which gives customers a restored sense of confidence.

Tom Walker, founder and director at The Hair Repair Club, said: “I’m delighted and extremely excited to be opening The Hair Repair Club’s first physical standalone store at Derbion.

“The satisfaction from seeing someone with low self-esteem and confidence becoming a person who feels so much better about themselves is what I work so hard for.

“I’m really looking forward to opening the doors to our first shop at the centre so we can continue to help and support so many more men of all ages.”

Adam Tamsett, centre director at Derbion, said: “We know that our customers are on the lookout for up-and-coming brands and a range of services to enjoy alongside our breadth of big-name retailers, and Hatch is a great way for us to give local, independent businesses the support they need to take the next step up.


“The Hair Repair Club impressed the judges with its strong business vision and unique offering.

“We’d like to wish them huge congratulations and we’re confident that the brand will be a big hit with our visitors.

“We were really impressed with the quality and diversity of applications this year to our Hatch competition, and alongside The Hair Repair Club, we’re in conversation with a selection of other participants to discuss the possibilities of support from Derbion.”

The Hair Repair Club will open its space, which will be located on Level 1, this autumn.
