Designer Room opens new fashion store in Shrewsbury’s Pride Hill Centre

A new fashion store aimed at teens to 35s has opened in Shrewsbury’s busy Pride Hill Shopping Centre.

Four new jobs have been created at the Designer Room shop, the eighth store in the growing group which already has bases in Manchester, the West Midlands, Yorkshire and Essex.
The manager is 24-year-old Holly Turner, from Shawbury, who has moved across the mall from the nearby Raw shop where she was in charge.

She heads up a team of four and she said: “It’s a new business and it’s very exciting being involved in something that’s growing so quickly.

“We do cater for young fashion for men and women but older woman do call in as well as we have such a good mix of items including bags and accessories.

“We’re doing really well and I’m enjoying it. The store has a very boutiquey feel and everyone that’s coming in is pretty much buying so that’s got to be good news.
“Shrewsbury is a lovely town and this type of shop suits it and should do well.” Mandy Ansell, the Designer Room Group General Manager, said: “We’re delighted to open up in Shrewsbury which is a busy town with a great retail offer.

“The company was bought out by the management in February so we have only really been trading since then and it is going very well.
“We try to keep prices as low as possible and offer a really good choice of casual fashion.”
Holly, who also models, designs and markets her own clothes and lingerie online and is a make-up artist, said: “The experience I have is really useful in helping customers find what they are looking for.

“The fact is that some things just don’t look good on a hanger but when you out it on it looks fabulous and it’s being able to see what will suit our clients that is important and being abel to encourage them to try something different.”

Kevin Lockwood, Manager of the Darwin, Pride Hill and Riverside Shopping Centres, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Designer Room to the Centres.
“They provide something different to our other fashion outlets and with Holly’s experience and enthusiasm they should do well here.”
