Press release / Opal adds colour to The Bridge in Frome
Press release issued on behalf of Frome lingerie boutique, Opal
A LOCAL business which has helped hundreds of women in the region find confidence has moved premises
Opal, the Frome lingerie boutique formerly at the foot of Catherine Hill has moved to the town centre and the window displays are attracting noticeable attention.
‘I’ve already attracted orders from those who have driven through the town and spotted the shop’ commented owner Randa Bott. ‘People are certainly slowing down to have a good look as they go past!’
The shop which fits customers with the right size and style of underwear has helped to reduce the national average of 70 per cent of women wearing the wrong size bra. Now the owner hopes that the move to The Bridge on North Parade will be a further positive influence on the changing face of the town’s centre.
‘It would be great if this move inspires others to open fashion retail outlets in the same place. I think there’s a real opportunity to establish another retail zone in the town.
‘Catherine Hill provided a wonderful place to start a new business. The support from customers and fellow shop owners was tremendous and I hope that moving elsewhere in the town will help to extend the almost magical shopping experience there is here in Frome.
‘Moving to a larger premises means I can display and keep more products in stock, while offering a more comfortable environment and more fitting room space for customers.’
The boutique’s specialist fitting service has proved very popular, as have the specialist lines for women who have undergone a mastectomy. Opal is one of very few lingerie outlets to stock a styled choice of prosthesis lingerie.
On the 6th September, Randa Bott was invited to give a talk about the post surgery underwear available, to post cancer treatment patients at Bath’s Royal United Hospital. She has also arranged to further her fitting expertise with a course at De Montfort University and plans to introduce her own line of post surgery mastectomy wear.
Opal is a specialist lingerie boutique offering an exquisite range of design-led lingerie for women of all sizes, alongside expert knowledge and a friendly personal level of service. Bra sizes AA – JJ are available and the shop will soon have a new website featuring online product sales.
For a discreet and complimentary fitting, call in at the new address 5 The Bridge, Frome, BA11 1AR. Or call to arrange a suitable time on 01373 455587; private appointments are also available.
