The UK’s leading nursery brand, Mamas & Papas, is set to open a concession in Next at Manchester Arndale, bringing its range of travel systems, nursery furniture and children’s clothing to new and expectant parents.
The new opening will create nine new full and part-time jobs.
Mamas & Papas will celebrate the arrival of the 3,300 sq ft concession on Friday 23rd October by handing out free goodie bags to the first 50 customers.
During opening week, the store will also be running a competition, giving new and expectant parents an opportunity to win one of Mamas & Papas’ new Strada pushchairs, worth nearly £700.
As well as offering a carefully curated range of products, the concession will provide in-store experiences such as personal shopping appointments.
“It’s been a challenging year for retail, so it’s great to be opening a new space – especially at one of the UK’s biggest and best-known shopping centres.
The concession will provide Manchester’s parenting community with the quality products and services they’ve come to expect from Mamas & Papas. We’re looking forward to welcoming the first customers through the doors, and to supporting all new and expectant parents through the journey ahead.”
