About our Taunton 1 store

Opening Hours

Monday - Saturday
9.30am - 5pm


The pretty cobble stones of St James Street host our Flag ship formal Wear store. The perfect, nestled amongst other independent shops where a more intimate corner of the County Town lies just yards from Debenhams Department store and our second shop in the town.

The stores 3 floors are cleverly laid out for easy browsing, offering less formal, lunch or dinner dresses on the ground floor, rising to the spectacular first floor showroom brimming over with more formal,  wedding and special occasion wear with hats galore and exquisite matching bags. Ample light and space and professional fitting staff create a truly second to none shopping experience here. Finally, second floor has gold walls dripping with breath taking Evening Wear.

Manager Caroline Cliffe has been with Retail Therapy from the very beginning and offers the best product knowledge in the company. She has trained all of her handpicked staff to the highest standard working hard to achieve the right balance between traditional service and respect and 21st Century enthusiasm and spark.

At Retail Therapy Taunton we're particularly proud of our 'in house' alteration service, a rare indulgence on the High Street, our experienced seamstress can perform the smallest tuck or an ambitious remodel with endless patience and without the garment leaving the building.
