The prelude to, and the aftermath of, Christmas, is synonymous with shopping. Some people hate the hustle and bustle of the retail rush, but others thrive on the feverish energy and excitement of the shopping season - with today being Black Friday we have already seen just how chaotic it can be! For people who enjoy a spot of retail therapy, this truly is the most wonderful time of year.
The lure of the high-street
The rise of internet shopping has meant that people can do their entire Christmas shop without leaving the comfort of their desk. This is a good thing in a way, as the reduced footfall on the high street means that busyness is reduced and it is easier to take advantage of one of the many ‘real world’ high street sales.
For someone who enjoys shopping – and we count ourselves among them – the items you buy are only a secondary part of the retail experience. Of equal, or even greater importance, is the pleasure of browsing aisles of clothes for great deals, trying things on, drinking in the atmosphere. Then maybe slipping off to a coffee shop or restaurant, resting your weary legs and watching the world go by.
The ultimate retail therapy experience
If this picture makes you smile, then we are with you all the way. Our question is, why let it stop at coffee? If you are planning a retail excursion into Inverness this Christmas, we’ve got an exclusive offer lined up that is custom fitted for shopaholics to make the most of their retail therapy.
Come along with a friend or loved one and let us pamper you at our lovely four star hotel, just a short distance from the city centre. At Kingsmills Hotel our fantastic shopper offer includes a night’s stay in one of our luxurious classic rooms, a full Scottish breakfast and full use of our leisure club, swimming pool and hotel facilities.
For an added treat, why not join us for dinner in our Conservatory a La Carte Restaurant, or book yourself some pamper time at our Kingsclub Spa. Check out our website to book your room and for more details, and enjoy winter shopping as it was meant to be enjoyed.
