Brownhills Blog regular and Facebook pal Rose Maria Burnell recently contacted me to say that she’d visited a great new shop in Brownhills High Street. I’m all for promoting local enterprise here, so I’ll let Rose tell you all about it.
I had the pleasure of visiting Glamourous (52, High St., next to Greggs) today. I would never normally even consider seeking ladies fashion clothing in Brownhills but I was very pleasantly supplied. It has a real boutique feel and a range of interesting pieces at really reasonable prices. I bought three things! There’s nowhere else like this in the area so I thought I’d spread the word!
I was very pleased with my three purchases and will definitely return. I’m personally very picky about clothes and normally keep to high street brands. These clothes are selected from a range of ex-high street stores and have a real boutique feel to them. They are certainly adding something to the town. It’s great to see a shop that doesn’t sell glasses or carpet!
Rose forwarded me a message from the proprietors of Glamorous, Carol and Julie, who had this to say – look out for the very special offer to Brownhills Blog readers:
It was nice to meet you yesterday and thank you for your purchase.
Thank you for your telephone call, it was very nice to hear from you and for you to think of us and want to help promote our shop was very heartwarming, you dont get many people like that these days.
I’ve attached some pictures of the shop.
We stock sizes from 6 – 26 some of which are ex-chainstore (River Island, Top Shop, Dorothy Perkins, ASOS). We also stock fashion handbags purses, fashion jewellery and a large selection of Laura Paige make up. We will be introducing a range of Hair Extensions next week.
Christmas Special – dresses £25 or 2 for £40 – what a bargain!
To come in 2011 we are introducing a loyalty card which is really something to look forward to.
We look forward to seeing you all.
If you mention Brownhillsbob we willl give you a 10% discount.
Carol and Julie
Let me state here and now that neither I nor Rose have any connection with the store, but it’s just nice to see small, one-to-one businesses operating in Brownhills, and when they come with such warm personal recommendations, all the better. I will be glad to profile any small Brownhills company or trader here if you’d like to drop me a line. It’s all about our town, after all.
I’d like to wish Carol and Julie all the best in their venture – they certainly seem to have customer care sorted out. I’d also like to extend my thanks to Rose for contacting me about the store.
