Last week I was invited to the opening of a brand new OUTFIT store at Crown Point industrial park in Denton, Manchester. Living in the city centre I rarely venture out for shopping purposes, so with Crown Point just a short drive away I was excited to check it out. If you're not familiar with the OUTFIT concept, the stores house a variety of Arcadia brands under one roof. It's sort of like a department store but a little less over-facing, very handy! I think OUTFIT is the ideal shop for anyone who is a bit lacklustre when it comes to the act of going shopping, or anyone who is rushed on time. If you're local there's also an OUTFIT at Manchester Fort, or you can check where your nearest OUTFIT is using their store locator.
The new Crown Point store is exactly what you'd expect from Arcadia (in a good way!) - big, clean, bright, and very easy to shop. I was drawn to the brands I usually wear like Topshop and Miss Selfridge, but also enjoyed browsing Dorothy Perkins and Wallis. The Denton store also has an Evans for plus size shopping, and menswear upstairs! Whilst there is obviously a smaller selection available from each brand than there might be in their individual stores, I was particularly impressed with the range of products. In the Topshop section for example, there was a full stock of that Alexa Chung leopard print skirt!
Check out some snaps from the new store below, including some bits I picked up for myself. Do you have an OUTFIT nearby?
