On Thursday, the brand new Grand Central shopping centre opened. After five years of building work and £150million spent, the hoardings finally came down, revealing this rather incredible space. Personally, I was astonished by how vast the space is actually is. Grand Central sits directly on top of the newly redeveloped New Street Station. Across the two, there are 66 new shops, bars and restaurants, around 50 of which opened on Thursday.
I was invited, along with other bloggers, press and brand types, to celebrate the opening with T H Baker. T H Baker is a leading independent jeweller, stocking a massive variety of brands alongside it’s own, including Swarovski, Swatch and Pandora.
The store is lovely inside, with so many brands packed in. For a first visit to Grand Central, this was great, like little bubble of calm away from the chaos outside, with champagne and canapes…what more do you need?
