Niall Opens Leawood Store

Kansas City-based luxury watchmaker Niall relocated their flagship retail store from the Country Club Plaza to Park Place in Leawood in January. While The Plaza was the right place for Niall to start, it wasn’t necessarily the right place for Niall to grow. About 80 percent of Niall’s customers reside in Leawood, so the Park Place space adds convenience and is roomy enough to host events and allow the watches to shine.

The company’s motto and culture are all about “honoring those who are all in.”

Founder and CEO Michael Wilson may be focused on luxury, but he is anything but arrogant.

“We have taken on the challenge of manufacturing luxury watches in America, which is an incredibly difficult thing to do,” he said. “we are dedicated to maintaining our status as the No. 1 watchmaker in America, according to The Good Trade. We love nothing more than when dedicated men and women celebrate milestones by purchasing a Niall watch because of what we stand for.”

The company is looking forward to an exciting and prosperous 2018 and a long-term relationship with the city of Leawood.
