Reuben had opened his first shop named as Miss Altitude. This shop was famous for selling girl’s accessories such as hair clips, cosmetics etc. The shop was opened in the year 1995 and was located in the Manchester Arndale Centre.
Although the shop had performed well, it had to face stiff competition in the market. This was because of a rising number of shops in similar categories which had come up soon after Miss Altitude was opened.
As per information available he had accumulated a wealth of almost £10 million in his lifetime. This was an interesting fact because at that point Reuben was also a student studying A levels in a reputed Grammer school in Manchestar.
