Find the perfect Father’s Day gift at The Rock

Father’s Day is just around the corner and here at The Rock we know just how tricky it can be to find the perfect gift for that special dad or granddad – so to make it easier this year we’ve pulled together a handy gift guide of Father’s Day presents available from retailers  at The Rock.

Put a smile on his face with a delicious giant cookie personalised with a message of your choice from Millie’s Cookies. Prices start at £14.99.

Over at Debenhams there’s plenty of accessories for dapper dads from prime leather men’s bags, wallets and to elegant formalwear with a choice of ties and pocket squares with gifts to suit all budgets.

Does your dad love a cuppa? Or maybe a whiskey is his tipple? From pint pots to flasks there’s a range of special gifts available at The Card Factory, with mugs starting from £2.99.


Maybe dad needs to relax and enjoy a pamper, if that’s the case head to Lush and treat him to one of their Father’s Day gift bundles and let him have some ‘me time’. From budget bath-bombs to full gift sets the store has something to suit every pocket.

Treat him to a new scent from The Perfume Shop – as part of the store’s Father’s Day promotion there’s some great discounts on some much-loved aftershaves.

From toffees to t-shirts and whiskey to real ales there’s an endless choice of treats in store at M&S – make sure you don’t open them before you gift them.


And don’t forget the card!

However you plan on wishing your dad a Happy Father’s Day on Sunday 18th June, visit The Rock for the perfect gift.

Fashion and beauty showcase is a hit with shoppers

A five day fashion and beauty spectacular held at The Rock in Bury proved a huge hit with shoppers getting ready for summer.

Style Your Summer, now in its third year at the centre, included a pamper zone for visitors to indulge in free makeovers, a style clinic offering beauty advice and fashion shows featuring the summer’s hottest trends.

Visitors enjoyed free hair styling, manicures and makeup and style experts were on hand to guide shoppers on what colours and fabrics suited their body type and skin tone and which summer looks they should be going for.

The week was topped off with a series of fashion shows where models showcased the latest trends from stores at the centre including River Island, Topshop, Topman, Primark, Simply Be, Debenhams, Burton, Dorothy Perkins and more.

There was also entertainment from the Ruff Diamonds street dance crew and dancers from The Zone in Bury.

Arnold Wilcox-Wood, centre director of The Rock, said: “Our Style Your Summer showcase has become a firm fixture in our events calendar and once again proved to be a huge success. Not only did the event showcase the latest summer styles available here at The Rock it was also an opportunity for our visitors to indulge in free pamper treatments and style advice.

“Our fashion shows once again drew in the crowds and I’m pleased to say over the course of the week our generous shoppers also helped us to raise more than £250 for our partner charity, The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity.”
