Moreton in Marsh, Gloucestershire (PRWEB) August 1, 2010
Kuoni opens new luxury travel store in the heart of Nottingham's shopping heartland, Bridlesmith Gate. The store is a landmark opening for Kuoni, as it is the 'tenth' luxury travel store opening for the company in the UK, and is part of an ongoing strategy for retail growth over the next 18 months.
The new store has created six jobs locally and follows the recent opening of five chic and exotic Kuoni travel stores in Bristol, Milton Keynes, Bluewater, Solihull and Cheltenham.
The Nottingham opening is seen as yet another great location for the luxury holidays (http://www.kuoni.co.uk/en/pages/default.apsx ) brand as it re-writes the history books on the look and feel of travel stores of the future. The Nottingham store has sumptuous seating, natural wood desks and brochure display areas; video screening to exhibit the far flung and exotic destinations on offer and a team of dedicated and well travelled advisors will be making sure shoppers have an enjoyable and memorable experience when they book a Kuoni holiday.
Derek Jones, Kuoni Distribution director explained: "We are proud and excited to open a store in Nottingham. We hope to have an enthusiastic welcome from the City and quickly become a 'must visit' store for the three million or so people who live within one hour of Nottingham's city centre.
"We want to encourage shoppers to visit Kuoni as part of their regular shopping trips. Anna Muir, the store manager and her team literally have the world at their fingertips and visitors to the store can book anything from an around the world trip to a weekend break."
Anna Muir added: "Nottingham is a vibrant city with a great reputation as a destination for shopping, and we want to encourage people to shop for holiday ideas and inspirations throughout the year, not just when they think they need a holiday. We want customers to browse our store the same way they shop for other luxury purchases."
Cllr Penny Griggs, Sheriff of Nottingham, commented: "We are delighted to have a leading travel brand like Kuoni in our midst. Nottingham has a wealth of both local and international business offering fashion, beauty, technology, music and sports brands and Kuoni is a welcome addition to what we have to offer local shoppers. Kuoni offer a truly dynamic new approach to buying travel for every budget and have over 100 years experience in the travel business. Now we can book our family holidays, weekend breaks or inspirational holidays of a lifetime and then enjoy shopping for the perfect holiday wardrobe in the other great stores we have in our city centre."
Derek Jones concluded, "We hope to change the way consumers shop for holidays. Kuoni have an enviable reputation for first class customer service from a team of well travelled and dedicated travel advisors who work in-store and Nottingham will be no exception. We hope to make every holiday booked the well deserved break from everyday life that we all need."
