Simply Be Store OpeningPosted: October 13, 2011
Last week I had the pleasure of attending the opening event for the new Simply Be store in Bury and what a great night it was! The store is HUGE. I was expecting a much smaller shop and was pleasantly surprised to see how big it was. I don’t know the square footage or anything but trust me, its huge.
It was a good night with champagne, canapes and giveaways, but I had the rotten luck of always being in the fitting room whenever there was a dress up gor grabs so I missed out 😦 After several trips to the fitting room (the VERY GLAMOUROUS fitting rooms as you can see below) I left with a lovely worksmart blouse that I eagerly wore the very next day. I love online shopping but of course you can’t beat the bricks and mortar experience. There were a few things I’ve seen on the website that didn’t really look that fantastic but look completely different face to face. The blouse I bought is one of them.
This was the second store opening with the first being in Liverpool a couple of weeks earlier. I’ve been assured there are more stores due to open within the next year so you never know, there may be a new shopping destination at a high street near you soon.
