LOVE will certainly be in the air when a new wedding and occasion wear store opens its door in Oldham… on Valentine’s weekend.

The new Dr Kershaw's Hospice store, Heart 2 Heart, will be situated in the Town Square Shopping Centre (opposite Beaverbrooks jewellers) and will be open for a 10-week run up to Easter.

As the hospice’s charitable partnership enters its third year, Mike Flanagan, centre manager, said: “We are delighted to see this store come to fruition. A lot of work has been done in the background and we are committed to playing our part in making this happen. The store is at the junction of the main walkways and we are sure that our visitors will like what they see.”

Dr Kershaw’s deputy income generation manager Jill Kirkham said: “We have an amazing array of occasion and wedding wear for ladies, gents and children on offer, much of it is brand new.

"The store offers a stylish experience in pleasant surroundings as our customers look to make that special purchase, at a price to suit all pockets.”

Royton dry cleaners, Taylor’s, is supporting the new venture by supplying covers for our bridal wear, keeping it in pristine condition for our brides-to-be.

In addition to the array of attire for that special occasion they will be offering a selection of designer hats, fascinators, shoes and handbags all at fantastic prices. 

Heart 2 Heart is looking for volunteers with experience in the bridal or retail sector to help make this a very special experience for visitors.
