Two popular local

businesses are joining forces to create a whole new shopping experience right

in the heart of Hitchin. Amore beauty salon will be opening an exciting new beauty

treatment 'pod' in Hawkins of Hitchin Department Store, Bucklesbury, on Friday 18


The new beauty

treatment 'pod', available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, aims to give customers

a complete pampering experience whilst shopping in Hawkins Department Store. Amore's

beauty pod will provide OPI's latest technology in nail gels that dry in thirty

seconds, as well as manicures, pedicures, and brow treatments.  At the same time, clients can browse the many labels

that Hawkins offer which include high street names Radley, Laura Ashley and

Punkyfish. The beauty pod will also provide a range of lessons in makeup

application for weddings and special occasions which complement the range of

bridal and evening wear available in Hawkins.

But, the new shopping

experience at Hawkins isn't just for ladies. This amazing new treatment pod is

also offering men the opportunity to have male grooming. The express treatments

on offer include a 'male mini-manicure' or male brow shaping for unsightly

mono-brows. This grooming service is particularly convenient for gentlemen waiting

for their wives to finish shopping who wouldn't ordinarily go to a beauty salon

for a treatment.

Amore at

Hawkins is just one of a number of modifications that will help transform Hawkins

Department Store. New Tea Rooms will also be opening in Hawkins the same weekend

providing customers with the chance to shop, have a beauty treatment or two and

then relax over a cup of tea and a cake, happy in the knowledge that the cake

has been made by a local business in Hitchin.

Debbie Renney,

the owner of Amore Beauty Salon said: "People have such busy lives so Amore are

offering beauty treatments that take as little as 15 or 20 minutes. As the pod

is conveniently located in Hawkins it means that you can treat yourself to a

new wardrobe, pamper yourself with a treatment and have a cup of tea without even

leaving the building. We think it will have a positive impact on the way people

in Hitchin shop."


Hawkins, Director of Hawkins of Hitchin Department Store said: "If you look

around Hitchin town centre you can see evidence of the changes that are taking

place in the retail industry. By working in partnership with Amore and

supporting local businesses we can keep the traditional values of Hawkins of

Hitchin, and provide exciting new services for customers that wouldn't be

available to people who opt to shop via the internet."

There are lots

of special offers in store across the weekend to help celebrate the launch so

make sure you drop in to Hawkins for a visit. For more details visit and . For an appointment at the new

beauty pod contact Amore directly by calling 01462 450 573.
