Harrods opened their latest branch in Bristol, continuing the fast rollout of its H Beauty chain. It’s the fourth standalone for the chain in the UK and coming in the same week that Farfetch and Browns launched their own giant beauty offers, it underlines the importance of the category to premium and luxury retailers. The new store is in the The Mall Cribbs Causeway and covers 25,300 sq ft. The space includes a diverse portfolio of products and services from over 86 international beauty brands. The product offer includes a big focus on fragrance with a dedicated Fragrance Bar, boutiques by Maison Francis Kurkdjian and Penhaligon's, as well as access to brand exclusives from Initio, L'Artisan Parfumeur, Parfums de Marly, and Montale. The extensive skincare offering includes a curated edit of 'Best Kept Secrets', an array of innovative beauty gadgets, haircare, make-up, and candles. There’s also a blow-dry product and salon phenomenon Drybar, make-up demonstrations and experiential product testing, bespoke skincare consultations and treatments along with a 34-seat Champagne Bar with a menu of cocktails and patisseries created by Harrods’ food and beverage team.
