The nationwide chain has taken over a former Dorothy Perkins store on North Walk in Yate Shopping Centre and is hopeful of an early-November opening but certainly in time to take advantage of the Christmas sales period. Work has already started on transforming the former fashion store to the familiar set up of Savers stores which sell beauty, health, fragrances, medicines, and home products at bargain prices.
This is exciting news for Yate shoppers who have previously had to travel to other Savers stores in Bristol for their bargains. The Yate location becomes the fourth Savers store in the city joining those in Regent Street in Kingswood and The Galleries, and East Street in Bedminster. Savers was recognised as one of the Sundays Times " Top 25 Big Companies to Work For" in 2019. Created as Savers Drugstores in 1988, it is now owned by the A.S. Watson Group which in turn is part of the Hong Kong-based C K Hutchinson Holdings. The A.S. Watson Group is the world's largest health and beauty retail group with 14,100 in 24 markets. In the same group are Superdrug and The Perfume Shop. Savers employees more than 3,000 people and operates more than 400 stores all around the UK.
As a destination shop for bargains, Savers sells top quality branded goods at heavily discounted prices and with fantastic deals. The range covers the everyday to the special occasion gift and top brands sold include Simple, Maybelline, Febreze, Dove, Oral-B, as well as premium hair care brands and the world's leading perfume manufacturers such as Calvin Klein and Gucci. Andy Lowrey, the manager of Yate Shopping Centre described the news as a "big plus for the shopping centre with another major retailer bringing more variety and great offers." Prior to the opening of the new store in Bristol, customers can check out the Savers website to get an idea of the products sold and the promotions, deals, and discounts.
