South Yorkshire vintage company Glass Onion has opened a pop-up shop in Meadowhall Shopping Centre.

Sheffield-based commercial property law firm Mason Thomas Law negotiated the lease on the new 3000 sq. ft premises, which is located on Lower High Street in Meadowhall.

Candice Birch, commercial property solicitor at Mason Thomas Law who negotiated the new lease said: “I am delighted to have played a small role in helping Glass Onion achieve its expansion on the high street. They’re an ongoing success story which we’re very proud to be associated with.”

Dan Green, Glass Onion Director of Finance and Operations, said: “With special thanks to Mason Thomas Law for such a quick turnaround and for being so reactive. We really appreciate the support and service they have given us throughout this process.”

In addition to the new Meadowhall pop-up shop, Mason Thomas Law also negotiated the lease for Glass Onion’s Division Street store which opened in Sheffield City centre in October 2023.

The opening of the Division Street shop heralded the start of Glass Onion’s plans to open on high streets throughout the UK over the next three years, adding to the business’ long-established online, wholesale and events sales channels.

Founded in Barnsley in 2006 by John Hicklin, Glass Onion is at the forefront of the second-hand retail boom. It is a zero-waste fashion business, recycling, reworking and remaking everything that comes into its in-house factory.

The company processes up to 20,000 kgs (44,000 lbs) of second-hand clothing every single week producing 12,000 garments a month from its sewing factory. Every piece of clothing produced and sold by Glass Onion was originally thrown away and destined for landfill.

John Hickling, said: “The demand for a unique product like ours, is definitely there and I see our expansion on high streets in the UK as being very much part of the future for Glass Onion.”

Negotiation of the Glass Onion Meadowhall lease follows hot on the heels of Mason Thomas Law being named as the Commercial Property Team of the Year at the Sheffield & District Law Society 2024 Legal Awards.
