This week has been a whirlwind! On Thursday the 2nd of November we were crowned for the second time as “Retailer of the Year” at the Pride of Tameside Business Awards. All the magpies went along to the evening and we had a fantastic night celebrating. A huge thanks goes out to you for your continued support of our shop. You can find out more about the night here: http://www.prideoftameside.co.uk/
The next day while recovering for the evenings celebrations we got a call we had been waiting for.. we found out we had just got the keys to our second shop -in the Arcades in Ashton Under Lyne. We wasted no time is getting down to the shop and work began on fitting it out ready to open on the 13th November. We worked round the clock to get the new store open in time, and we are really happy with it. We are located in the Arcades shopping centre, on the upper floor next door to New Look. We will be mainly focusiing on our handbags and purses in this store, with your favourite brands Brakeburn, Cath Kidston, Fiorelli, Radley, Tula and Yoshi. We have a small selection of our gifting ranges, including Carrie Elspeth and Galleria umbrellas.
When we opened on Monday, the Mayor of Tameside stopped by with some local councillors for a spot of Christmas shopping. It was lovely to meet her and to have the support from the council. We have also been visited by some of our regular Stalybridge customers – which was a lovely surprise:)
This week after the opening we have been working in the evenings at Stalybridge, to get everything ready for the opening of our in store pop up Christmas Shop. The shop opens on Saturday 18th November, and like last year it has a range of beautiful Christmas decorations to add some Christmas cheer to your home and gifts. We have got a North pole theme this year, and anyone spending over £30 will receive a FREE Polar Bear mug from Cath Kidston. We hope you can make it to both shops, and that visiting them will bring you joy this Christmas x
