UPDATE (FRIDAY): Springfields in Spalding hails ‘phenomenal’ Joules store opening
Premium lifestyle brand Joules successfully launched its new 3,345 sq ft outlet store at Springfields Outlet on Thursday.
Around 300 customers arrived ahead of the store opening, tempted by quality products and special opening offers. The store remained extremely busy throughout the day.
Springfields retail director Simon Stone said: “Having successfully launched a number of new stores and leisure attractions over the past 18 months, we are used to attracting healthy customer numbers on opening days.
"It is fair to say that the Joules opening at Springfields on Thursday was quite phenomenal. Joules is a great new brand to add to our offer here and it is proving popular with our customers already.”
Singer, songwriter and TV presenter, Peter Andre, will headline the fourteenth annual Christmas Lights Switch On at Springfields Outlet next Thursday, October 25.
The event is free of charge and will be hosted by the popular Heart FM’s breakfast presenters, Kev and Ros. Further entertainment will be provided with performances by the local St Paul’s Community Primary School Choir and the renowned Holbeach Town Band. The event starts at 6pm and all shops will be open until 9pm.
