Shoppers will be spoilt for choice as Rituals Cosmetics opens its doors at Westgate Oxford today (Wednesday, October 30).

The luxury body cosmetics brand joins Westgate Oxford’s already impressive line-up of 100 shops, restaurants and a cinema, ranging from high street favourites to independent stores, offering something for everyone.

Brendan Hattam, General Manager at Westgate Oxford, said: “It’s fantastic to welcome luxury brand Rituals to Westgate Oxford, offering an even bigger choice for shoppers just in time for Christmas. We’re sure the new Rituals store will be a big hit.”

The new Rituals store is part of the brand’s commitment to growing their retail presence in the UK under the leadership of UK Managing Director Penny Grivea. She said: “We are delighted to be bringing the Rituals experience to the residents and visitors of Oxford with our first ever stand-alone store in the city.

“The interactive shopping experience we offer sets Rituals apart, giving busy customers the opportunity to slow down and enjoy life’s little moments.

“Whether it is enjoying a hand massage at the water island or simply a cup of herbal tea on arrival, the team strive to transform daily routines into meaningful rituals.”

A grand opening event will be held at the new Rituals store on the North Arcade, on the Upper Ground Floor, on Saturday, November 2nd from 9am, with luxury goody bags available with each purchase for the first 50 customers.
