A bright and well-organised store lacks a touch of finesse.
Clothing multiple - Intu Trafford Centre Manchester, ground floor
Shoppers entering Quiz cannot help but be taken aback by just how bright the store is, from the highly polished floor to the strips of LED lights that create a feature wall with added glitz. A booming party R&B soundtrack gets shoppers in the mood for a glam night out. Unlike high street rival Lipsy, the store is neat, apart from a big Sale section. There is plenty of choice, from a navy and cream floor-length lace dress (£54.99) to a stretchy pink and black lace skater dress (£26.99). The partywear is offset by a selection of affordable daywear, including a cute denim dungaree dress (£26.99).
The changing rooms are chaotic: staff shout among themselves and a door is left wide open to a back storage area. While the changing rooms boast mirrored walls and chandeliers, the overall effect is let down by the cubicle’s flimsy rail and dusty floor.
