Jobs are to be created when a beauty and skincare specialist moves into a Flintshire shopping park.

The Body Shop is to create eight new jobs when it opens a new store at Broughton on Saturday.

The 1,430 sq ft store, on the Eastern Terrace near Boots and Sports Direct, is rewarding the first 50 customers with a free goody bag.

Shoppers attending the store’s opening event, taking place between 10am-7pm, will also be treated to free pampering sessions including hand massages, skincare consultations and makeovers.

The Body Shop’s new look store is the third to open in North Wales.

The Body Shop is the latest in a long line of new arrivals at Broughton, following the JD Sports opening earlier this year and Primark in 2016.

Jacqui Fieldgate, The Body Shop store manager, said: “We hope that both new and existing customers will enjoy the enhanced shopping experience in our fantastic new North Wales store.

“The opening party this weekend is shaping up to be a really great event – the team can’t wait to hand out some freebies and make over Broughton’s shoppers.” 

Alan Barker, centre manager at Broughton, added: “I’m sure there will be a queue of people wanting a first glimpse of the store on Saturday, and I’m looking forward to seeing shoppers’ reactions.

“The Body Shop joins a growing list of beauty brands available at Broughton, and helps to cement our reputation as one of the region’s leading shopping destinations.” 

The store is open from 9am-8pm on weekdays, 9am-7pm on Saturdays and 11am-5pm on a Sunday.

    It's not the Tories it's the Leader. Unemployment continues to fall despite the south Walian bias of WAG
