Perfume Shop officially opens in Monks Cross Shopping Park

A PERFUME store is officially opening in York mall this weekend.

The Perfume Shop opens with gift bags for the first 25 customers on Saturday.

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

Katherine Sharp, Monks Cross center manager, 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 the many new brands that have joined the shopping park in the past six months. We are confident that the new store will be well received by Monks Cross visitors.”

Steve Brant, regional retail manager for Fragrance Shop, said: “At The Fragrance Shop, we couldn’t be more proud of our growth trajectory this year, especially after the turmoil of the past 18 months.

“The fact that we are opening our second store in York shows that demand for affordable perfume is higher than ever, especially during the Christmas period, so we look forward to opening our doors and welcoming new customers to brand new York. The Monks are passing the store.”

The Perfume Shop will host a special launch event at its brand new York Monks Cross store on Saturday, giving away gift bags to the first 25 shoppers, and shoppers can enjoy exclusive discounts and free samples throughout the day.
