Beechwood Shopping Centre

Treat Your Mum To Something Special crack

With Mothering Sunday a little later than usual this year stores in Beechwood Shopping Centre have had extra time to ensure that buying that special treat for mum will leave customers spoilt for choice, without having to dig deep into their pockets.

An extra treat is in store for someone’s mum with the chance for a lucky shopper to win £300 worth of pampering from DestinationSkin. For the chance to win a gift for mum with the wow factor, all you have to do is visit their branch on Beechwood’s balcony level and complete an entry form.

DestinationSkin is the place to visit for cutting-edge anti-ageing and skincare treatments. Whether you want to achieve a younger-looking, clearer complexion or remove unwanted hair, there is a treatment to suit every skin type and requirement.

Using only the latest, non-surgical techniques, expert consultants have the knowledge and years of expertise to make your skin look younger, smoother and more beautiful. Visit them on the balcony level of Beechwood Shopping Centre to discover the full range of treatments and cosmeceuticals they have to offer.

Gifts of all shapes and sizes and to suit all pockets can be found in stores such as Debenhams, Next, Thorntons, Candles and More, Love It, Edwina Edwards, Silver Mine and Jewellery Stop. Make-up, jewellery, scented candles, chocolates, lingerie, handbags and scarves or perfume... the choices are endless, and all under one roof, perfect for grandma, mum or that special auntie.

A new experience, GarraSpa, has arrived on the balcony level next to DestinationSkin. So if you want to treat mum to a pedicure with a difference, this is the place to go.

Garra Rufa fish treatment is fast-growing in popularity. The fish originate from mineral springs in Turkey where their health benefits were discovered and once hands or feet have been placed in warm water, doctor fish begin to investigate, nibbling away at dead skin cells and hard skin to leave the treated areas silky smooth.

The fish have no teeth, so there is no pain involved in the treatment, just a gentle massage sensation that feels like little bubbles.

On top of receiving a gentle pedicure the fish have also got healing properties. The fish have a natural enzyme in their saliva called diathanol that heals the skin and this is good for eczema and psoriasis. To make an appointment or find out more ring Garraspa on 07413 430862, and don’t forget to mention The Cheltonian.

Easter follows soon after Mother’s Day and after a brief spell in hibernation Beechwood Bear will be donning his shorts and t-shirt ready to help shoppers win vouchers in Beechwood’s competition ‘Where’s Beechwood Bear?’.

Beechwood is crammed with gift ideas, not just for Mother’s Day and Easter but for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. Our unique mix of independant shops means you’re sure to find a present that’s out of the ordinary but if it’s brand names you’re after, then Next, Debenhams, Disney and Thorntons are just a few to satisfy your shopping appetite, and when you need a break from all that shopping, Fresh Crust and Caffe La Scala are perfect for a delicious snack or a refreshing drink.

The centre is open seven days a week. Public and disabled toilets and a parent room are available on the first floor near the lifts with an additional parent room/disabled toilet on the ground floor.
