A BASINGSTOKE shopping centre is set to welcome its latest store next week - with plenty of rewards for its new customers.

Well-known premium lifestyle brand Joules is opening its new store inside Festival Place on Friday, December 6, just in time for the Christmas shopping season.

To celebrate, they will be giving out £1,300 in rewards for their first twenty customers.

The first shopper in the queue will receive a £150 gift card, the next four will receive a £100 gift card and £50 gift cards for the next 15.

There will also be hot drinks for those first in the queue.

Centre Director Neil Churchill said: “We are always looking to attract the retailers our customers want, and we know Joules is going to be incredibly popular.

“This is the latest in a series of new arrivals to Festival Place, following on from Jack Wills, Typo, Homesense, and The Cosy Club, giving us an enviable line-up of premium retailers and restaurants.”

Tom Joule, Joules Founder and Chief Brand Officer said: “We’re thrilled to be opening a new Joules store at Festival Place.

“We’re really looking forward to bringing our unique personality and style to shoppers in Basingstoke over the coming months and can’t wait to open the doors on the 6th of December!’’

There will also be 20 per cent discount from December 6 to 8, and their Random Acts of Kindness initiative will see them randomly give out gift cards to lucky customers.
