The Fragrance Shop officially opens at Monks Cross Shopping Park

A PERFUME store is officially launching in a York shopping center this weekend.

The perfume shop opens its doors on Saturday with gift bags offered to the first 25 customers.

It’s the latest brand to move to Monks Cross in recent months and will be the company’s second store in York, along with another at McArthur Glen Designer Outlet.

Katherine Sharp, Center Manager at Monks Cross, said: “We are delighted to welcome The Fragrance Shop to Monks Cross, just in time for the exciting Christmas shopping season. This latest opening continues the momentum of several new brands that have joined the retail park over the past six months. We are sure that the new store will be well received by Monks Cross visitors.

Regional Retail Manager for The Fragrance Shop, Steve Brant, said: “At The Fragrance Shop, we couldn’t be prouder of our growth trajectory on the high street this year, especially after the turbulence of the 18 last months.

“The fact that we are now opening our second store in York shows that the demand for affordable fragrances is higher than ever, particularly in the run up to the Christmas period, so we look forward to opening our doors and welcoming new customers in our new york brand Monks walk through the store.

The Fragrance Shop will host an exclusive launch event at the brand new York Monks Cross store on Saturday, offering goodie bags to the first 25 customers, and shoppers can enjoy exclusive discounts and free samples throughout the day.
