Dunnes Stores Bishopstown Court has a lot to celebrate. Just one year on from the successful unveiling of the new state-of-the-art store, the store has rightfully become a major destination shopping experience in the South West of Ireland.
To celebrate this successful milestone, and especially timed as a preview to the Christmas season, the team at Bishopstown Court are organising a very special festive weekend on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th of November.
The celebrations this year will include very special fashion shows on Saturday 16th November, with one of the leading lights in fashion in Ireland, Celia Holman Lee, showcasing all of our designer collections and main ranges. Flying in especially for the event will be one of Ireland’s top designers Paul Costelloe and also designer Joanne Hynes will be meeting her many Cork fans on the day. There will also be a wide range of activities in the new state-of-the-art Food Hall, where some of Ireland’s leading food producers will be on hand to meet customers, and to invite them to sample some of their signature and award winning products.
Sunday 17th November will be all about family and home which will be hosted by two of Ireland’s most loved and respected designers and personalities, Brendan Courtney and Sonya Lennon. As well as showcasing their own Lennon Courtney collection, which is exclusive to Dunnes Stores, there will be the exclusive collections from all the designer and main range brands. One of Ireland’s top make up artists, Derrick Carberry will also be in store to meet customers and to provide Styling Sessions for some lucky competition winners.
In addition, the team are also organising lots of kid-friendly activities and there are plans for a very special guest, Santa Claus, and some of his elves, to call into Dunnes Stores Bishopstown Court over the weekend, to celebrate with everyone. Added to this, there will be plenty of surprise giveaways, which are yet another way of saying thank you to everyone for such a successful year.Follow TheCork.ie (The Online Newspaper for Cork, Ireland) on social media
