Being nominated at the Juice 107.6 FM Style awards for The Up and Coming Award was music to the ears of Phil Melia, owner of Opulence in Cavern Walks after being the newest and most recently opened unit in the shopping centre. The store has been open since July this year and has been a real hit since the day it opened with local shoppers and celebrities such as Lydia Rose Bright (TOWIE) and Sophie Kasaei (Geordie Shore) along with local footballers.

After finding out Opulence was nominated for The Up and Coming Award at the Juice FM 2013 Style Awards, Phil called out to customers, friends and family to vote for him online. The feedback over the weeks was amazing and really helped promote his campaign to pick up the award, with thousands of votes cast.

The awards were held at the Anglican Cathedral on Saturday 26th October and hosted by Adam and Gemma from the Juice FM breakfast show. Opulence where then named the 2013 winner of The Up and Coming Award. A job well done and a great end to the year for the business. When asked on the night what next for Opulence owner Phil commented “Im delighted to have won the award, we have only been open since July this year but being recognised like this so early is a great achievement and shows the impact we are having in bringing some style and glamour back to people’s homes.”
