Southport Debenhams' #FoundIt Gala Event 2015
Photograph by Patrick Trollope

CHRISTMAS shopping is now in full swing in the UK and in Southport, on Lord Street, the local Community Church popped into Debenhams #FoundIt Gala event to add some extra festive fun. On Thursday, 3 November 2015, we popped over to the store that had been packed with shoppers having makeovers and treatments at Debenhams beauty counters, as Christmas music was performed by the Church. The Church also provided candy floss and other sweets, to add a bit more cheer, as the store’s staff handed out goody bags and cup cakes! Who says you can't get a sweet deal in Southport? This was a great fun event and all who attended had the chance to test nearly all the products on offer, at the store. Did you go? If you did, please email us and let us know what you thought of the event, to:- We look forward to seeing what the store will do next, very soon! To see a few more photos taken at the event, please click on here now. Also do not forget to take a look at this year’s festive market, which will run from 11 December 2015 to 20 December 2015. If it gets a bit too wet and windy, you can always use the cafe in Debenhams and explore the floors packed full of goods. You might even find what you’re looking as well!
