Bonmarche Taunton celebrates 30 years
9:00am Tuesday 21st August 2012 in Taunton
BONMARCHÉ marked its 30th anniversary in style as Taunton shoppers joined in on the celebrations.
The Taunton branch of the women’s clothing chain released 30 balloons and served a special 30th anniversary birthday cake, which was handed out to customers visiting the store.
The retailer was also on the hunt for an 82-year-old woman named Eileen to join in the fun as Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ hit single ‘Come on Eileen’ topped the charts in 1982 – the same year Bonmarché was founded.
The winner was Eileen Boyt, who will receive a £30 gift voucher from the store.
Manager Dawn Artingstall said: “It was lovely – it was great that so many customers decided to join in the celebrations.
“It was also very nice for Taunton Town Centre Manager Graham Love to come down and support us.”
