Health & beauty retailer Superdrug has today announced that its Putney high street store has been revamped after being the first one of the chain to open 46 years ago.
Managing Director Joey Wat unveiled the new store at 8:30am today, which initially opened in 1966 when mascara was sold in blocks, body care meant soap and skincare was cold cream.
In this relaunch there will be services available such as threading and manicures from £5 alongside the value for money cosmetics.
Superdrug Putney store manager Jodie Smith, who has worked for the company for ten years, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be opening our refurbished store to our customers.
“Many of them have been shopping here for years and some still remember when it first opened.
“It is fantastic to be able to showcase our new look store while still offering the latest in beauty at the same great prices.”
This store is one of 900 of the chain’s stores currently trading in the UK and are part of the AS Watson group who are the largest health & beauty company.
Joey Wat, Superdrug Managing Director said that this reopening will celebrate the store’s success: “We are delighted to be celebrating the success of the Putney store with this refurbishment.
“To have been succeeding on a local high street for so many years is a fantastic achievement.
“We are thrilled to congratulate our current and all previous store colleagues and thank them for their hard work over the years in making this is a high street success story.”
