Bents reveal new look for gift department

by | Sep 20, 2017 | News | 0 comments


Cheshire based Bents Garden & Home is always looking for ways to innovate and improve and this time the Centre has focused its attention on gifts, launching a fantastic new-look department just in time for Christmas.

Bents has always been passionate about gifts and now, after a major ?100k investment programme, the department has been given an extensive makeover which can be seen in our latest film:

The recent works bring the department in line with other areas of the store which have been transformed over recent years. They also help set the scene for the final phase in Bents? journey which will see a brand new entrance, providing a new focal point and bringing all elements of the Centre together.

The new-look gift department has been opened out and extended, with new display units providing more space, making it easier to browse and shop for the perfect product.? Two different and distinct areas have been created; one for the home and one for you, both of which are full of great gift ideas.

?The new home area combines all homeware gifts with Bents? floristry department. Each display is beautifully themed bringing together popular products with colour themed flowers and candles, whilst all jewellery, luxurious toiletries and beauty gifts such as L?Occitane and Molton Brown products, have now moved next to the clothing department, creating an exclusive new area.

Bents has planned a special opening event between Wednesday 27?and Friday 29?September between 5 ? 8pm when customers will be able to experience the new-look department and enjoy demonstrations from suppliers such as Bath House, Wax Lyrical and Rocktails as well as giveaways and a golden ticket prize draw, all to be enjoyed with a cheeky glass of fizz!
