Have your say

TWO new fashion shops are to open in Gunwharf Quays by the end of tomorrow.

Today, American lifestyle brand Original Penguin will be opening its doors, followed by British brand Joules, opening tomorrow.

Centre director Ian Hart said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Original Penguin and Joules to our ever-increasing collection of aspirational brands.

‘We aim to offer our customers the best possible choice of premium brands at affordable prices. They are both an ideal fit for us as we continue to strengthen our fashion offer.’

The first 50 customers through Original Penguin’s doors during the shop’s first four days will be given a goodie bag.

The lucky person who is first in line when Joules opens will get a £100 voucher. The next 10 early birds will be given £50 vouchers, and the final 20 will get £20 vouchers.

Francisco Hoffmann, managing director of Perry Ellis Europe, which owns Original Penguin, said: ‘The relaxed waterside venue perfectly complements the Original Penguin ethos for enjoying life with a twist of fun.’
