A shop selling premium beauty products by a range of top brands for up to half price has opened for business in Derbyshire.
The Cosmetics Company started trading at McArthurGlen’s East Midlands Designer Outlet, at South Normanton, this week.
The store, which is the firm’s first in Derbyshire, stocks more than 17 Estee Lauder brands from around the world, including Clinique, Mac, DKNY and Tommy Hilfiger. Makeup, fragrance and skincare products are sold by the business.
The company said that all products stocked by its new Derbyshire shop have to 50% off the recommended retail price.
The Cosmetics Company was founded in 1994 and opened its first UK store at Bicester Village Outlet Centre in Oxfordshire.
Since then, the firm has grown to more than 100 stores, predominantly based in shopping outlets.
To date, it has opened 10 stores in the UK. The latest at East Midlands Designer Outlet has a floor space of just over 2,000 sq ft and has created eight new jobs.
The shop is stocking 17 top name cosmetic brands
Paul Tyler, centre manager, said that the arrival of The Cosmetics Company was a welcome addition.
He said: “We’ve long wanted to strengthen our beauty offering, so the addition of The Cosmetics Company to East Midlands Designer Outlet is something we’re very excited to bring to our customers.”
Something for the shopaholics out there
East Midlands Designer Outlet is home to around 65 stores which sell top branded products, from clothing to homewares, at reduced prices.
Several big name retailers have outlet stores there, selling goods up to 60% cheaper than on the High Street. Retailers who have a presence at the outlet include M&S, Next, GAP, The Body Shop and Yankee Candle.
Earlier this month, chocolate brand Lindt opened its own shop at the outlet and gave away free chocolate to celebrate.
