CHANEL PERFUME TOO POSH FOR SALFORD
 

Star date: 22nd December 2011

A Salford Star Exclusive

FROM SALFORD? GO USE CANAL NO 5!

Chanel perfume will not allow its brand to be sold in Salford, the Salford Star understands.

Readers have told us that when they have gone to buy any Chanel perfume at shops in Salford, they have been told that the brand is not licensed for sale here.

Full story here…


While Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier and Issey Myake perfumes can all be bought on Salford Precinct, if you're looking for Chanel No 5, you'll have to make do with Canal No 5.

Salford Star reader, David Lyons wanted to buy a bottle of Chanel from The Fragrance Shop on Salford Precinct but was told that Chanel wouldn't allow its brand to be sold in Salford. The Salford Star also visited the shop and was told that there was `no demand' for Chanel.

Meanwhile, assistants at Boots on the Precinct told our undercover scent investigator that the store didn't stock Chanel, while an assistant at the bigger Boots store on Regent Road said that the store wasn't licensed to sell the brand – it was only stocked in Manchester.

The Salford Star got in touch with Chanel and asked for a comment on why Chanel wouldn't authorise its brands to be sold in Salford. We were told that the company couldn't comment as all its managers had now gone away for Christmas – let's hope they're not coming to Salford and trying to buy a bottle of their own perfume…

If a brand doesn't feel a product will sell well in a particular store due to the local demographic and business climate, it is perfectly acceptable to withhold a that product from the store. Thousands of shops do it. This is most commonly known as business.

This definitely stinks! However, Chanel admit that they still use suppliers who test on animals - so maybe we should be glad they've chosen not to come here. Happy Holidays and thanks to the STAR for its politics, culture and humour x

Are the Quays still classed as Salford as far as this is concerned or is it a case of their own postcode coming into play? Just asking.

So if somebody were to open a store & exclude some sections of society based on race or religion that would be ok?

see comments below...We respond to reader's e-mails and phone calls - Chanel had almost a week to comment on this story and didn't. So there you go... Meanwhile Salford Monkey is correct - everyone knows that Rhodri Giggs and Salford City FC should win the Sports Personality of the Year Award. We're off to Media City now to protest...

Sorry but I don't think this has anything to do with the store being in Salford, or Chanel being 'too posh' for Salford... I think it's just a case that the stores aren't big enough, that they're not flagship stores. I think the Star is making mountains out of molehills here...

Is it April 1st? Is this the best the Salford Star could come up with? Shouldn't you be at MediaCity moaning about how nobody from Salford is up for the Sports Personality Of The Year award?
