Our Centre Manager, Marie Gribben, shares 5 benefits of shopping in-store rather than buying online:
There’s no better way to figure out whether an outfit will suit you than in person. You’ll have a store full of options for you to see, touch and try, helping you make the decision that’s right for you.
It’ll be yours to take home then and there, avoiding the hassle of ordering various options in multiple sizes, waiting in or making separate arrangements for items to be delivered and returned.
The stylists and sales assistants are there to help you – they are specialists who know their products better than anyone else and they’ll help you select the outfits or accessories that will bring out the best in you.
For beauty-related products, in-store makeup artists and brand counter assistants are available to discuss the results that you’re after. They can recommend what products you need, that will complement your hair colour, skin tone and type.
Many retailers in Middleton offer exclusive, temporary discounts and promotions that you won’t find online. Increasingly, retailers choose to release new collections or items in-store before making them available through their websites, giving their customers the first chance to browse in person and shop for new products.
Whilst you’re out, take a break for some brunch, lunch, dinner or just to grab some coffee and cake. If you wanted to indulge, have a mid-shop treatment like your brows styled or other beauty treatments at the many places available in the shopping centre.
Use it or lose it. We need to support local businesses, to help keep them on the high street and retain the thousands of jobs they provide for local people. The best city and town centres are ones with a varied and vibrant retail that provides support as well as dining, leisure, cultural and community spaces for us all to enjoy – we need them just as much as they need us.
