Penarth’s newest retailer Edinburgh Woollen Mill has enjoyed a busy first day of trading in its new shop in Windsor Road.
The store opened yesterday – Good Friday – and was reported to be busy all day with many customers taking advantage of its launch offers and early giveaways.
The premises – formerly those of Holder’s Menswear – have undergone a complete internal and external makeover – to be ready in time for the Easter weekend.
The entire re-fit and redecoration of the store – which has completely transformed the look of the premises and given it a much brighter and livelier feel – was all done and dusted within just 14 days flat.
Hundreds of customers have called in to the new store on its first trading day. Staff said there had been “lots of support from the local community” and high “footfall” [i.e – a lot of people visiting the store] .
