Kirkcaldy Town Centre Management (KTCM) has teamed up with many town centre businesses to present ladies with a real pampering shopping day on Thursday 13th December 2007 – the UK’s first ever “Girlie Day”! Conceived as a way of helping ladies “de-stress” after a hard day’s shopping, “Girlie Day” offers those ladies shopping in Kirkcaldy Town Centre the opportunity to take advantage of some superb pampering offers from participating businesses and make it a really fun and relaxing shopping experience.
Over 40 businesses will be supporting this innovative promotional event which will feature personal shopper and gift wrapping service in each of the shops and as a “reward” for a hard days’ shopping, the shoppers can take advantage of one of many “girlie Treats” on offer from a number of participating businesses. Among these “Girlie Treats” are a complimentary Nail Analysis & Hand massage, an Indian Head Massage, Head & Shoulder Massage, Cocktail, Glass of wine, speciality coffees. All in the name of Christmas shopping!
Kirkcaldy Town Centre Manager, Sunil Varu, stated,
“This event is organised in direct response to comments from women that Scotland’s first ever “Blokes Day” event last year – an event which we are again organising – only “rewarded” men for shopping.
Having reflected on how stressful Christmas shopping can be for women too, we came up with the “Girlie Day” promotion designed to make shopping in Kirkcaldy Town Centre a very easy, convenient and special experience that will remain an abiding memory for all who take part. I am delighted to have the support of so many businesses which are wholeheartedly committed to it – large and independent retailers, beauty salons, restaurants, cafes & pubs.
This is yet another event in the Kirkcaldy Festive Calendar of events – Christmas Lights Switch On, Skating Rink and the Italian Market. We are trying to bring the fun factor back to Town Centre shopping particularly at Christmas time and there is already much excitement about the Girlie Day event.”
Two of the businesses taking part in this event leant their support and enthusiasm:
Christine Cunningham of “Bliss Beauty” commented,
“Girlie Day is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to take part and I am totally confident the Girlie “treats” will go down a treat! We shall definitely contribute to an excellent all round shopping experience and are very much looking forward to it.”
Denise James, Complementary Health Practitioner, added,
“Girlie Day is certainly a novel way of putting not only Kirkcaldy Town Centre map as a shopping centre but also address the needs of women when Christmas shopping. It will at least convert for one day what many women consider a stressful chore into an enjoyable experience. A little bit of pampering for us women never goes amiss!”
