Perthshire, Scotland – August 1, 2011 (via PressReleasePivot.com) — The new business for the old Perth College premises in Pitlochry, has been unveiled amidst great pomp and ceremony. Over fifty businesses from across Highland Perthshire attended the opening of ‘Amor’ the Cashmere, Tweed and Home Furnishing Store. Both the business name and concept have had been kept a closely guarded secret until the opening.
The opening ceremony began with two pipers from the Vale of Atholl Pipe Band playing outside the doors of the new business. The business name and all the windows remained covered to prevent people knowing the details of the new business.
Kirpal Singh Sually the owner, welcomed everyone and proceeded to unveil ‘Amor’ by removing the sheet covering the business name board amongst great applause. Everyone then entered the building, still with its windows covered, to be served with Champagne and canopies.
Mr Sually explained to the invited guests that he had been working on the concept for the last 9 months, saying, “I approached Perth College to see whether I could acquire the premises, and six months later here we are with Amor.” He continued, “I have worked closely with Cashmere and Harris Tweed suppliers, Lyle and Scott, Brooktaverner and Magee developing a range of products for Amor, further supplies are in the pipe line.”
Mr Sually went on to announce the ‘Guess the Business Competition’ winner, as Kirsty McWilliam who correct guessed the business name ‘Amor’, Mr Sually presented her with a £50 voucher to spend in Amor.
Mr Sually had one final request of his guests and that was to help him unwrap the new shop from the inside by removing all the paper covering Amor’s shop windows, thanking them for coming and helping him launch Amor.
Messages of good luck were sent by Peter Guthrie the Development Officer for Highland Perthshire Destination Management Organisation, who apologised for not being able to attend as he was on holiday but said, “It is really great to see a quality business moving in to Pitlochry’s high street.”
Mary Bover secretary of Pitlochry in Bloom said, “Pitlochry does need an upmarket business like this, it looks absolutely wonderful, it has class, style and is so subtle. I wish Mr Sually every success and look forward to shopping in Amor”.
Mr Sually also thanked everyone who had worked so hard to get ‘Amor’ open, his own family, Jean and Willie who works with him in the Scottish Shop next door, Ian Lewis Designs the architect, Grant Structural Services, Beveridge Builders, Kraftwork Joinery and Macolm Hewitt Joinery, Gordon Eason Electricians, James Lang Decorators, Allan Moncrieff Alarms and Richard Drummond from Strathgarry Restaurant for the canopies and drinks.
