Hoopers department store in Wilmslow celebrated its 30th anniversary with a wildly different kind of party. The celebration combined burlesque with theatre, circus and fairground fun.
Visitors sipped on champagne and nibbled on canaps as they browsed the departments and enjoyed eye-catching attractions and impromptu performances.
Dramatic makeovers were in full swing in the beauty halls while art installations, contortionists, caged dancers and stilt walkers joined in the spectacle. And general manager Simon Carr and his staff entered into the spirit enthusiastically!
Hoopers first opened their doors in 1982 and now have department stores in four English towns.
Anne Horton, Managing Director commented: I am thrilled and extremely proud to celebrate the special milestone with suppliers and customers. The 30th anniversary celebrations have been rolled out to all four of our stores with over 2,500 guests helping us celebrate.
