The opening date for the new Beales department store in Southport has been revealed – with free gift vouchers of up to £200 for the first 150 people through the doors!
The new Beales store, on Lord Street in Southport town centre, officially opens its doors at 9.30am on Thursday, 12th August.
The exciting new venture will see the creation of 40 new jobs and will be the third Beales store to open in the UK after Poole and Peterborough.
A Beales spokesperson said: “To celebrate our reopening we’re giving the first 150 people through the doors a free gift voucher worth up to £200!
“You can spend this on anything you want, but it must be used on Thursday the 12th of August only.
“It’s going to be busy, so arrive early to avoid disappointment, doors open at 9.30am.
“Voucher values available are £200, £50, £25, £10 and £5.”
Beales has signed up seven local concessions for its new department store in Lord Street in Southport.
They include the new ‘Remedy at Beales’ cafe on the ground floor, with beautiful views into Wayfarers Arcade, with a Molloys furniture concession on the third floor.
Beales CEO Tony Brown praised Stand Up For Southport and Southport BID after successful appeals for local businesses to join the new venture ahead of its opening this August.
He said: “We have now signed up seven local businesses to come in and open concessions in our new Beales store in Southport.
“Thanks to all the appeals through Stand Up For Southport and Southport BID, we now have seven great local businesses on board, and also had a lot more than that contacting us who were keen to get involved too.”
Building work and shop refitting is currently going on behind the doors of the landmark Lord Street building, part of the historic Wayfarers Arcade, ready for when it opens on Thursday, 12th August.
Beales will employ around 40 members of staff and is making a much-anticipated return to Southport following a total investment of around £800,000.
The Beales brand is now owned by New Start 2020 and headed up by Tony Brown, Chief Executive of the former Beales.
Last year he opened Beales in Poole, followed by Peterborough earlier this year with Southport due to be their third store.
Making Southport the firm’s third venture is a huge vote of confidence in the future of retail for the busy coastal town.
