Festive Place – Your place for a stress-free Christmas shopping experience
Basingstoke, United Kingdom, 15th December, 2015
Festival Place is making the Christmas shopping experience easy and stress-free for customers this festive season with their ‘Festive Services’ pop-up Christmas shop.
The service comes as part of a series of events and activities organised by the centre to spread the Christmas cheer, including changing their name from Festival Place to ‘Festive Place’.
Festival Place Centre Director Steven Connolly said: “Whether a customer is looking for the best gifts to buy, needs help with their shopping bags or wants gifts wrapped, our dedicated Christmas staff will be on hand to assist.
“Running all the way up to Christmas Eve, the Festive Services team provides:
– Gift Guide advice
– Shop and Drop
– Relaxation Zone
– Festival Place Gift Cards
– Tags for the Share Your Christmas Love Tree
– Charity gift wrapping service
Festive Place retailers have got behind the service, as Kelly Mills, Store Manager at French Connection comments, “‘The ‘Festive Services’ at Festival Place is just what is needed after a day’s shopping! A place to put your feet up whilst gifts are being wrapped!”
Nigel Skeete, Store Manager at Starbucks added “Festive Services has added a lot of value to Festival Place and my customers have been very positive about the service.”
The centre will also be joining forces with the Shopmobility charity from the 9th to 24th December. Working hard to raise the much needed £25,000 annual costs for the charity, 22 individual volunteers will be on hand to wrap customers’ gifts, along with volunteers from local offices including UNUM, Shoosmith’s, Scottish Southern Electric and Sun Life Financial of Canada. Funds raised by the service will help the charity provide their 1,000 customers with the 25 scooters and wheelchairs hired out each day.
