They say “Our continued success is based upon one hundred percent customer service, presenting an individual and unique shopping experience. In addition to this, Agatha offers an out of hour’s personal shopper service, a professional in-house seamstress to obtain those little alterations for the perfect fit and to complete the look, a gift wrapping service is available on request.” 

When I was there, I experienced this personal shopping service and found it interesting to have someone look after me in this way. It’s reminison of the film Pretty Woman, just without the pizza. I was helped by Hannah.  

“The thing about Agatha’s is we make time for each individual” says sales assistant Hannah. “We will give them a personal unique service because we don’t want you to just pick something from the rail, buy it. We can give you different options on how to style it and things so we’re just adding to the experience. I think that’s what Agatha’s does best.”
