Its always a pleasure to head to a press event as a blogger, lovely to see fellow blogger friends, and journalists and it never fails to be interesting to hear the staff at the event speak so passionately about their new venture.
But its twice as exciting when its a press event at a brand new store that happens to genuinely be one of your most favourite stores!!!
Home Sense has just opened its latest branch in the retail park of Hedge End, Southampton. I was lucky enough to be invited to the preview press evening and had a lovely lovely time! What a great store! Really beautifully laid out, fantastically stocked and a joy to walk around. The store is large and the aisle huge, the stock is varied and gorgeous. It one of only two stores to be licensed to sell alcohol too, so the champagne and fine wines are included in the world food section. The home furnishing are a treat to the eye, and I tell you that it would be easy toby the entire store, from the towels to the frames to the armchairs. As a part of the TK Maxx family its easy to be impressed with the variety of items - trust me, I bet you've never seen many of the items before, and thats what makes it so special to shop. Really good to speak to the senior staff too, the area staff in particular really raved about working for this company and spoke highly of the work ethic and attitude throughout. Thats very special indeed.
