He's known for his straight talking and can sometimes divide opinion but you can’t say he hasn’t put the Sheffield Lord Mayor’s Office on the map! Next week he’s set to put our brand new menswear department on the map as we introduce new brands like Superdry and Jack Jones to sit alongside our more well established lines.

It’s unlikely you could have missed Sheffield’s flamboyant Lord Mayor, Councillor Magid Magid, over the past few months. From swapping traditional attire for a baseball hat to banning Donald Trump – he has made front page news everywhere.

But we think he's saved the best till last! On Tuesday 9th April he’s set to unveil the biggest shake-up in Atkinsons’ menswear in over two decades.

Atkinsons Menswar Official Opening

Magid will be unveiling our brand new menswear department which sees the introduction of more youthful brands like SuperDry, Only & Sons and Jack Jones. They now sit alongside the store’s more long established lines that have been popular for many years.

“We couldn’t think of a better person to unveil our new-look menswear department than Councillor Magid. He has introduced the office of Lord Mayor to younger audiences and we’re honoured that such an influential figure will play such a big part in a historic day for Atkinsons”, said our very own David Cartwright, Store Manager.

Why not come along and say ‘hello’? Magid’s year in office is nearly at an end.

The Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Magid Magid, will unveil our new first floor menswear department at 11am next Tuesday, April 9th.
