This week our Birmingham Gallagher store turns 5 years old. Five years! And like any proud parent, we want to shout it from the rooftops.
We’ve opened a lot of stores around the UK and internationally, but we never get tired of seeing one grow into an important part of the local community. Birmingham Gallagher has definitely done that. Don’t be fooled by the name though, they’re not in Birmingham. You can find the team at ‘Junc 9 Retail Park’ as the locals know them, just don’t call them Birmingham!
Birmingham Gallagher’s success is all thanks to the dedicated team, and even after five years we’re proud to say that some of the original members are still there, doing their thing.
A massive thank you to Sue and Melissa who keep the whole operation ticking over nicely – they’re always on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly and we couldn’t do it without them. Also, a big thank you to Kayla who really brings that personal touch to our Personal Shopping service, she’s helped many new parents to navigate this sometimes bewildering time. Between the three of them, they’ve spent the last five years helping to make Birmingham Gallagher the much-loved store it is, and we thank them for their loyalty.
As for the rest of the team, we have a very special bunch. A lot of people would think having a Manager and Deputy Manager with the same name would be confusing. Birmingham Gallagher welcomes the challenge. Sarah and Sarah make a great team – despite the confusion when it comes to who’s turn it is to make the tea – and they’re always on hand to help customers. So, if you need something, just ask for Sarah!
But today isn’t just a celebration for the store’s birthday; one of our team also shares this special day. Happy Birthday to Melissa who turns 24! We hope you get a fair share of the cake!
Our stores hold a number of parenting events throughout the year and we’re always excited about them. It’s a great opportunity to get to know local parents, as well as a chance to put on some fun activities and a few tasty treats. We always look to Birmingham Gallagher when we run events, as they’ve been incredibly supportive and their team help to make them a great success. They even came top of all stores when we ran our first!
Birmingham Gallagher continues to be one of our most popular stores, with over 66,000 parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, friends and family coming to us for those first important purchases in the last year.
We’re also very popular with the local footballers – being pretty central to West Bromwich Albion; Birmingham City, Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers. In fact, our team have been lucky enough to meet a lot of the recent Aston Villa babies, including Helen Flanagan and Scott Sinclair’s new little girl. So if you’re in the area, there’s a good chance you might be hobnobbing with celebrity parents. As ever, Birmingham Gallagher is the place to be.
To celebrate Birmingham Gallagher (and Melissa)’s birthday, we’re throwing a Birthday event with cake and decorations, and even a special birthday offer just for you. Why should we get all the presents?
We’re giving every customer 10% off everything in store, all weekend.
Come along and get advice on everything from pushchairs to nursery interiors; get a free car seat fitting without having to book and obviously, grab a slice of cake and a saving or two. With a great range of products and services plus free parking available right outside, why not come down and wish Happy Birthday to the Birmingham Gallagher team?
Go on, it is their big day, after all.
