UK plus size retailer Yours Clothing will open a new store in London tomorrow that features fitting rooms equipped to give customers compliments as they stand in front of the mirror. The pre-recorded messages will be available on demand in the rooms.
"We are excited to be opening a store in Uxbridge and the store joins a portfolio of many new store openings that will offer our customers a unique shopping experience," Resh Dorka, Sales and Marketing Director of Yours Clothing, told GetWestLondon. The new store location will be the first to house the interactive fitting rooms.
