A new independent nail bar has opened at the redeveloped Bell Court in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The owners behind The Brow Studio, which has successfully traded at Bell Court (formerly Town Square) for the past three years, have expanded with a second unit at the development.
Located at the Rother Street entrance to Bell Court, opposite The Brow Studio, The Naildressers offers a variety of manicure, pedicure and nail art treatments and is already developing a regular client base.
Sita Pall, manager of both The Brow Studio and The Naildressers, said: “Nail art is incredibly popular at the moment, with people becoming more creative with their styles, colours and finishes. With this in mind, we’ve been looking at opening a dedicated nail studio in Stratford-upon-Avon for a while, so when the opportunity for a new unit at Bell Court arose, we had to take it.
“The team at UK & European went out of their way to make the process easy for a small business like us and it’s great to see their desire to support local businesses such as ours. Bell Court is set to be a fantastic scheme and I’m delighted to be part of it.”
The Naildressers offers a range of treatments including bespoke nail art, glitter, ombre French acrylics and shellac/gel polishes, as well as classic and luxury manicures and pedicures. This perfectly complements the treatments available at The Brow Studio which specialises in eyebrow threading, mascara lash extensions, Russian lash extensions, HD brows and IPL laser hair removal.
John Stacey, Asset Management Director at UK & European Investments, said: “For us, getting the right blend of independent retailers and national businesses is key to the success of Bell Court.
“We currently have a couple of units that we’re hoping to let to smaller, local businesses and would encourage people thinking of expanding or opening a new shop to come and speak to us. Companies such as The Naildressers and The Brow Studio add to the diversity of the scheme, helping Bell Court to appeal to a wide audience. We strongly believe in encouraging local talent and hope to announce that more independent occupiers will be opening at Bell Court in the coming weeks.”
Bell Court comprises over 70,000 sq ft of retail, restaurant and leisure space. Over the last 18 months the scheme has been redeveloped with a vision of becoming a top retail and leisure destination at the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon. Many of the buildings have been remodelled and vast improvements have been made to the public realm, including feature lighting throughout the development, new brighter and more welcoming entrances, high quality landscaping and wooden seating, a living wall and the introduction of public open space for events and outdoor entertainment.
The Naildressers is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday between 10am and 5.30pm, Thursday between 2pm and 7pm and Saturday between 10am and 5pm.
