Premium lingerie retailer, Rigby & Peller is set to launch a new boutique in Guildford, Surrey, on July 20.
Rigby & Peller has invited Guildford’s ladies to attend the launch and will offer one customer who visits on opening day the chance of winning a free lingerie set.
Customers will also have the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary fitting and viewing of the extensive range including lingerie, swimwear and nightwear pieces.
Rigby & Peller Guildford store manager Amanda Menikou said: "As a local to the area myself, the opening of Rigby & Peller Guildford is an exciting addition to this thriving shopping location. I’ve been working for Rigby & Peller, helping ladies achieve a flawless silhouette, intermittently for the past 20 years and cannot wait to bring this experience to Guildford. It is great to see local ladies with such style and pride in their appearance, so it is my mission to help enhance this even further."
Rigby & Peller managing director Sharon Teasdale added: “We are delighted to be taking the skills and expertise of our world famous Lingerie Stylists directly to Guildford, serving the women of the area as well as men seeking a luxurious gift for the special lady in their life. We have an underwear solution to suit every body type and look forward to helping even more women achieve the perfect fit from this exciting new location.”
The new Guilford store is the latest in a series of new outlets to be opened by the luxury retailer, the majority stake in which was bought by Belgian group Van de Velde last year.
Van de Velde attributed its 0.9 percent growth in consolidated turnover in the first half of 2012 to the strong performance of Rigby & Peller in Europe. The business saw an eight percent increase in turnover over the period due to the opening of its first stores on the Continent, located in Germany and Spain.
The retail turnover of Rigby & Peller in the UK contributed for an amount of £ 4.5m, representing a growth of about 4.5 percent on a store-to-store basis.
