Brown Thomas Cork has recently launched its Full Circle service in-store, which allows consumers to swap pre-loved bags for a Brown Thomas Gift Card, which can be used in-store or online. According to a BT representative, "the service is a terrific way to renew and clean away undesired things from closets."

"Customers can bring their handbags to the Concierge Service on Level 2 of the Cork shop to be valued by the crew." It may take up to three working days after your bag is received by the experts for appraisal to obtain your quotation, which will be mentioned on a call from the staff and then provided to you through email. Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Celine, Chanel, Dior, Hermes, Fendi, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Chloe, Gucci, Mulberry, Prada, Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Tiffany, Longchamp, Tom Ford, Stella McCartney, and Goyard are currently accepted.

Hugh Brown and James Thomas, haberdashers and drapers, founded Brown Thomas in 1849, and the name has since become synonymous with luxury, integrity, and beauty. By the mid-1850s, Brown Thomas had established itself as a landmark store on Dublin's main thoroughfare, Grafton Street, with customers returning for a stylish, sophisticated, and brimming with flair retail experience. In 1919, Harry Gordon Selfridge, the legendary American, purchased Brown Thomas and brought it into the twentieth century. The Store returned to Irish ownership in 1933, when John McGuire and his sons purchased it.

Surviving two world wars and a civil unrest that ravaged the country, the store remained a reliable icon of grace and good taste in good and bad times. Galen and Hilary Weston bought the iconic Grafton Street premises in 1971, more than a century after Brown Thomas first opened its doors, and set about transforming it into a store to rival the best in the world.
