News from Sheen…
Pearson Performance is open now.
We've actually been open for just under two weeks and we’re very much enjoying the Sheen flavour; the myriad of sandwich shops, the fresh, steaming coffee and the prevalent hum of cassettes spinning down the high street. Thus, it seems that after a long summer’s slogging away at an empty shell, the Pearson team have emerged from the completed work, riddled with knots, peppered with brick dust and with smiles from ear to ear.
The day of the opening was my first proper visit to Pearson Performance and even after 8 hours of being there I hadn’t completely drank it in. It was only after a day of what can only be described as a real-life enactment of 60-Minute Makeovers, that I realised just how exciting the space is. From the beautifully-engineered speed machines that adorn its floors and walls to the all-day coffee bar, where the Pearson community can enjoy the same scintillating conversation in Sheen, as well as Sutton - except this one has more of a retro feel.
An elevated clothing area, sporting a subtle Union Jack, offers clothing from Endura, Castelli and luxury, merino wool undergarments from Icebreaker. Take a fix from heat-moulded Fi’zi:k and Lake shoes while you're there. Further, don’t forget that the new Pearson Performance winter clothing range is set to land shortly.
On Friday 2nd September, the friends & family opening was graciously attended by cycling legend Sean Kelly and his counterpart David Harmon. The crowd was a true representation of the amount of work, passion and creativity that have been poured into the new shop and the sense of pride was evident within everyone. The festivities may have carried on a little later than we had anticipated and with normal opening hours commencing on the Saturday, some of us were shaking off the cobwebs come morning-time.
So drop by soon to see the shop that everybody is talking about; have a coffee, a chat and browse our ever growing range of exciting, individual products from international brands; Serotta, Guru, Ridley, Brompton and of course Pearson.
The official opening of Pearson Performance is Friday 23rd September - come one, come all from 17:30 onwards.
