Don’t Be Late For A Very Important Date

Thu 11 Apr 2019

On Easter Saturday, 20th April, we have teamed up with Angels Children’s Parties to bring our customers a very special party in Wonderland.

Don’t be late, for a very important date. As customers are invited to dress as their favourite character for an Easter Party with Alice, in the Hardshaw Centre.

Shoppers will be able to get their photo with Alice, in front of the Wonderland backdrop, have their face painted and enjoy the entertainment area with sweets and bubbles between 12pm – 2pm, with Angels Children’s Parties.

Alice will be in the centre to meet Hardshaw shoppers and we’re encouraging customers to dress up, with white rabbits, Queen of Hearts and Cheshire Cats all welcome to join in the fun.

This is a free event, with donations being taken towards Cash for Kids.

Sat 16 Mar 2019

More than 200 bargain lovers queued to get through the doors of new discount retailer One Below at the weekend.

The store is the latest venture by father and son entrepreneurs Christopher Edwards (36) and Christopher Edwards Senior, who founded Poundworld Retail Limited before it was sold to American private equity conglomerate, TPG Capital in 2014.

One Below opened on Saturday (March 16 2019) in the former Poundworld unit in The Hardshaw Centre, creating 20 local retail jobs for the town.

The new independent chain sells more than 5,000 products, retailing at £1 or less, including items across 10 departments including groceries, home, health and beauty, baby care, toy, DIY, partyware, craft and gardening.

Christopher Edwards managing director at One Below said: “We’re delighted to have received a great welcome from St Helens shoppers, with queues down the shopping centre for our opening. We’re happy to be open in The Hardshaw Centre and we look forward to providing locals with stand out value on thousands of amazing products.”

Welcoming the new tenant, Gary Mitchell, centre manager, said: “We’re thrilled to have attracted a new national retailer to the Hardshaw Centre, which promises to provide even more choice for our customers. Judging by how popular the opening day was, this is a great addition to the centre.”
