Local customer Heather Hodgetts was the lucky £1000 winner and didn’t take long to buy her festive treats.  
 
The luxury retailer treated guests to a night of music, food and drinks showcasing brands such as Versus Versace, Stone Island, Kenzo, Giuseppe Zanotti, Michael Michael Kors and many more!

Jenna Triscott Flannels Marketing Manager said: “It’s fantastic to see so many people here supporting our opening night.”
 
“We’re really excited and proud to be part of the Hereford retail landscape offering the area the best shopping and luxury fashion experience.”
 
Guests enjoyed a champagne reception and tasty canapés were served up by Cellar Door. Entertainment came in the form of a fashion showcase with models from Gingersnap and music from local DJ’s Street Sellers.
 
Flannels is one of the UK’s leading luxury fashion retailers. The new 14,600 square foot store spans two floors and stocks both men’s and women’s luxury clothing, footwear and accessories, in addition to a dedicated space for children’s wear.   
 
The first Flannels store opened in Knutsford, Cheshire in 1976 and since then the company has successfully introduced designer fashion largely to the North West and Midlands regions. 
 
The opening will bring Flannels to Hereford and is a landmark moment for the company which already has a chain of successful stores in Manchester, Liverpool, Plymouth, Leeds, Birmingham, Sunderland, Swindon, Cardiff, Newcastle, Nottingham and Southport.

I know that I am not alone when I say that I will not be rushing to shop in this store.

What with the extraordinarily high prices, and their product line consisting of coats trimmed with fox, raccoon and coyote fur...

Nice to see a new shop opening - too expensive for my wallet though I'm afraid (besides which, I'm not a person who is concerned with designer labels anyway)

The price isn't really the point, Ragwert, the fact that they are selling clothes which "boast" real fur trim bothers me far more.

Yes that bothers me too, never realised real Coyote Fur and real Racoon Fur was being used.

It's owned by Sports Direct and the staff are on zero hours contracts. I wonder how many of the 'glittering guest list' did their research before taking the freebies on offer and supporting such an arrangement.

Bought my granddaughter some ugg boots for £32....Bargain

 

Genuine Uggs retail for £150+, something seems suspect if they are charging only £35.

Animal rights at Hereford store.

 

 

 

The blonde in the picture winning the vouchers is from Worcester. She's a model and PR girl hired by stores to turn up and look glam, funny how she won. Just lucky I guess.

I thought she looked just too perfectly groomed but did not wish to appear spiteful in commenting.. Well with Next quaking a bit and M&S and Debenhams results due out next week I wish this very expensive shop luck!

Yes I know where your coming from TWG. The robes of office can place you in company that would not normally be your preferred choice. Shame.
