Home-grown cosmetics brand, BPerfect, opened with a bumper weekend of sales in their new mega store in Derry-Londonderry.
The 2,200 square foot store opened on Saturday, and is located in Foyleside Shopping Centre creating 8 new jobs.
The opening follows the launch of the BPerfect flagship mega store in Belfast in October 2021 which has been a complete ‘game-changer’ in the UK and Irish beauty retail sector and exceeded all targets, despite being closed since 24th December.
Brendan McDowell, founder and CEO of BPerfect Cosmetics said he plans to build on the success with the same offering in the North West: “We are absolutely buzzing to open our second store in beautiful Derry-Londonderry this weekend – sales were exceptional and the welcome we received was second-to-none.” He explains.
“The North West has always been huge supporters of our brand and the people have always been so welcoming and I am personally so excited that we are here to stay.
“Every effort has been made to make sure the store is ‘fully inclusive’ with colourful, glitzy, amazing interior décor which ‘pushes every boundary’ housing a range of ten top beauty brands from top make-up artists and cosmetics retailers.
“We have also just launched a new product this week; our “Perfect Storm” palette – which has already gained huge online interest.
“We have mirrored what we did in Belfast and want to start to work with local charities who need our support, plans are already afoot, and we look forward to making a difference where we can.
“The past 12 months have been both a challenge and also a very real opportunity for us to grow our online brand.
“However, nothing beats being present on the High Streets of our two leading cities in Northern Ireland.”
Brendan concluded: “I am grateful to both our amazing team and loyal customers who supported us so much over the past twelve months and have allowed us to get to this point. We look forward to the next chapter in the BPerfect story.”
