Bosses at Norwich’s Castle Mall have announced the opening of three new stores at the shopping centre.
The new arrivals at the centre are The Indulgence Company, the Perfect Eyebrows Beauty Salon and That’s Entertainment, which is moving from Castle Street.
The Indulgence Company opened on Saturday on level 2 next to Carphone Warehouse - the second store in Castle Mall for company director Aaron Roberts. Mr Roberts said: “After the success of Gifted, which we opened two years ago, we are very pleased to have opened a second store in the Castle Mall.
“We wanted to offer a store with an eclectic mix of wonderful little things.
“The Indulgence Company specialises in extra special gifts and treats from wonderful Woodwick and Kringle candles to sumptuous creams and lotions from Nougat London.
“We have a large selection of handmade jewellery from Pilgrim and Carrie Elspeth alongside beautiful homely gifts, stationery and handmade, crystal encrusted cards.”
The Perfect Eyebrows Beauty Salon will open on Saturday, next to BB’s on level two, marking the growth of a business which started life as just two chairs next to a stand.
Prakash Koria, director, said: “I relocated from Birmingham to Norwich to set up a beauty business, in particular eyebrow threading.
“It was hard at first leaving all of my family to come to a city I had never visited before. However, the people of Norwich and the staff at The Castle Mall welcomed us with open arms and a friendly smile.
“Initially my wife and I started Perfect Eyebrows by having two chairs next to a stand and although it was a very modest setup the people of Norwich took to it very well.
“As we became more popular the company grew and we employed a couple of staff and moved our operations inside a custom made kiosk.”
The company went on to open similar kiosks in Chapelfield and in Cambridge and Mr Koria said: “Today we are proud and excited to have six staff and to be opening a salon inside the Castle Mall and all in the space of three years.”
That’s Entertainment, which sells CDs and DVDs, have switched to Castle Mall from its branch in Castle Street. The new store will open on level 2 next to Ryman stationers this Friday.
Lizzy Loukes, store manager, said: “We are really excited to find our new home in Castle Mall and can’t wait to open in a bigger and better store.
“We look forward to welcoming all our regular customers into the new store and meeting many new ones as well.”
Vicky Merrison, marketing manager at the Castle Mall, said: “We are delighted to announce the opening of three new stores in Castle Mall.
“This is great news for the centre and these new stores will certainly add to wide variety of shops we already have here at Castle Mall.”
