The Meek Boutique was set up by Lynne Meek and husband Russell back in 2018, selling women’s clothing over the internet worldwide. 

The business soon began to grow as the brand’s reliance on quality and a very high level of customer service saw them become a go to clothing shop for ‘tens of thousands of women who need quick, easy solutions for their wardrobes’. 

The company has since grown out of the family’s loft and the business is trading from a large facility in Linden Park in Tunbridge Wells. The number of employees has grown, too.

Lynne and Russell have now been joined by their sons Tom and Dan, who are both involved in the family-run concern that saw some of its largest growth during the pandemic.

“During this difficult time we felt incredibly blessed to have such huge loyalty from our customers”

“We had to adapt quickly to a very new set of demands, difficulties and frustrations,” Lynne Meek told the Times.

“During this difficult time we felt incredibly blessed to have such huge loyalty from our customers. 

“And indeed the business grew rapidly as more women relied on buying their clothes online, often for the first time. 

“Covid saw a large part of our growth, which makes us very lucky for being in the right place at the right time.”

Lynne added that while their customer base is global, they feel very much part of the Tunbridge Wells business community.

“We live and work in Tunbridge Wells and really love it.

“We feel very passionately about Tunbridge Wells and feel very much a part of the community so want to be part of the awards as we feel it is important to champion local business.”
