House of Fraser City store set to open on Tuesday

House of Fraser is racing ahead with fit-outs for its new City store, due to open on Tuesday.

The 43,000 sq ft (3,995 sq m) shop, located on King William Street in the former Guardian Royal Exchange, has a boutique format and will focus on fashion and cosmetics.

Among the store's offers to its target cash-rich, time-poor customers are express facials, mini-makeovers and a cosmetic courier service.

Female City slickers caught short in the lipstick stakes can call a hotline to order their favourite makeup and skincare products for same-day delivery to their desks.
