Massive Sale at our pop up shop

As you all know we've been running a pop-up shop for a few months in the St. Enoch centre in Glasgow. Time is almost up for this location and to celebrate we are having the most, amazingly MASSIVE SALE.

Hundreds of items are now up to 70% off and on selected lines you are even getting "buy one get one free" (I prefer to call it BOGOF! :)).


This poster pretty much says it all!

Whats more you know you'll be getting a bargain, you'll be saving some of these clothes from the bin!

That's right whatever you don't buy we are going to bin! (Or more probably give to charity.)

So hurry on up and get yourself down to the pop up store in St. Enoch before it closes at the end of next week!

Don't worry for anyone outside of Glasgow the website is also running its on HUGE SALE!!

You can find that here.

As always you can keep up to date with the shop by following us on Twitter and liking our page on Facebook.
