Introducing Beales at Bedford

I'm Abigail, the Store Director here at Beales Bedford. I have worked in the store here for 2 years now, previously working in the Saffron Walden store. The rest of my senior team consists of Jo Nowicki, the deputy store director, who has worked in the store for 15 years. I also have Beverley Mackay, my 1st & 2nd Floor Manager, and my team of section managers: Julia Argent, Julie Stringer, Surjeet Suman, Natalie Houghton. 

We are located just off the main High Street on Harpur Street in Bedford. We have many wonderful departments all located in our beautiful listed building. Pop in and browse our cosmetics department where we have counters from Clinique, Estee Lauder, Clarins, Dior & Lancôme and many top name fragrances as well.

We also have a wide range of ladies fashion, with Jacques Vert, Country Casuals, Roman, Tigi, Simon Jeffrey, Miss Selfridge and much, much more. Our latest shoe edition is a brilliant Brantano department with many brands of shoes available here.

We have just introduced into the store a fantastic childrenswear department, where we now stock Kite Kids, Esprit & Regatta kids clothing. This sits along side our brilliant toy department - we think its the best in town!!

We also offer a personal shopping service where we can help you find the perfect outfit for any occasion. We also have a fabulous lingerie department with experienced fitters available to help find you exactly what you are looking for!

We hold a 'Knit & Natter' group of the 1st Monday of every month in our haberdashery department. So, if you would like to come along for a chat and to share your knitting ideas, please contact us at the store for more details! The group is always expanding and they have all made many new friends!

Finally, take a visit to our great restaurant. We have a great menu to choose from, ranging from homemade scones to daily lunch specials. We can take group bookings for special occasions, so why not book an afternoon tea with a group of friends and spend the afternoon with us!
