TK Maxx Opening: Keighley

I have to apologise for this post before you start reading it, it's quite picture heavy. I didn't even use all the photos I took during the event either!

I was over the moon to be invited to the opening of the new TK Maxx store in my hometown of Keighley. Myself and Kel headed down with the press for a pre-opening walk around at 8:30 am! We had the whole store to ourselves, and I honestly could not have been happier walking around a treasure trove of delights without having anyone banging into me or eyeing up the same purchases as me haha.

Here we have Kel modelling two of her purchases, although she only bought the skirt as when we came back to the dresses after the store had opened the dress had gone! 
Those Keighley folk were snapping up the bargains!

I spied an amazing Russian Doll print shirt which I simply had to have. And being knocked down from £56.00 to £19.99, I simply couldn't resist. I also bought the most amazingly gorgeous pair of bright pink Mary Jane shoes with skulls on, from a famous rock chick who 'wouldn't like your boyfriend' hehe.

My favourite things in the store were definitely the shoes, bags and beauty products. 

(Yes, this bag does have teapots and teacups on it...)

One of my favourite things about TK Maxx is going into the homewares section upstairs. I'm a massive fan of storage boxes and kitchenalia! There were some gorgeous treats to be had upstairs. I regret missing out on purchasing a Belgian Waffle scented candle for £2.99, which was huge and simply gorgeous! 

(It took me a while to work out the giant cupcakes on the left were in fact cupcake storage and transport containers - genius idea!)

When inside, I hadn't noticed the massive queue forming outside. The first 500 into the store were to receive a £10 gift voucher. I honestly hadn't have imagined that before 9.00 am there would be so many people queued up outside ready to come in. Unfortunately I didn't manage to take a snap! 

I would like to say a big thank you for being invited, and a congratulations to everyone in the store for making the opening really amazing! Everyone was really friendly and chatty with us!

Good luck TK Maxx Keighley!
