For a six week period, Poppy Bridal, an occasion dress specialist will be trading at the Darlington based centre to showcase its latest designs to members of the public looking for a glamorous style over the festive season and beyond.

The boutique, which is located in the upper mall between Claire’s Accessories and HMV, specialises in prom, evening and cocktail gowns as well as accessories for all occasions and will be at the centre untilJanuary 03.

Owner, Paula Whittaker, who also runs the flagship bridal boutique in Duke Street, said: “I’m delighted to have a presence at the Cornmill over the festive season as the venture comes at a time when young girls are looking for their summer prom dresses and ladies are on the lookout for something special for their Christmas parties.

“So far, footfall has been phenomenal and we’ve seen real benefit in offering our customers a walk-in approach as opposed to our usual appointment-only service.

“I’ve been really impressed with the retail experience at the Cornmill and the feedback we’ve had from customers so far has been fantastic – I’m confident it will be a successful venture.”

Susan Young, centre manager at Cornmill shopping centre, said: “We are delighted that Poppy Bridal will be at the centre until the New Year.  The store brings a lot of glamour to the centre and offers something that is completely unique to women of all ages so it’s no surprise that it has been such a hit with shoppers.”

Poppy Bridal will be open every Thursday from 9:30am until 6pm and Friday and Saturday from 10am until 5pm. For further information about Poppy Bridal visit http://www.poppybridal.co.uk.
