A.S. Cooper Relocates Children’s Department

February 8, 2016

A.S. Cooper & Sons, Ltd. has relocated their Children’s Department from 27 Front Street, across from the Ferry Terminal to a new home on the 2nd floor of the A.S. Cooper Main Store building. The new department called “Kid’s on 2” will be fully operational and open for business on Tuesday, February 9th.

Kid’s on 2 occupies about half the 2nd floor and has been re-painted in rich whites, blues and greys. The area will undergo further renovations in the next 30 days.

New wood floors will replace the carpet and new fixtures will be imported to give the department an “upmarket and quality feel,” the company said, adding that the new area attempts to complement the marque brands like Polo Ralph Lauren Childrenswear and the other popular labels they carry.

A grand opening of the new department and the new adjacent restaurant, “Somers’ Café” is slated for March.

A.S. Cooper CEO Somers Cooper commented, “We can already see that Kids on 2 has elevated the presentation of our great selection of children’s fashion and we believe that our loyal customer base will embrace the new look.

“Sales associates Chelsea and Sharelle have moved along with the department so customers can expect the same great service along with our excellent team already on the 2nd floor. We expect that they will also be excited by the new brands we are introducing.”

“Currently the department features U.S. priced collections from Polo Ralph Lauren, My Michelle, Jessica Simpson, Jo Jo Maman Bebe, Joules, Carters, Oshkosh, French Toast and Little Me.

“I think the Mum’s and Dad’s will also appreciate the new café with balcony seating over Front St., situated just inches away from the department,” predicted Mr. Cooper.

Mr Cooper is tight lipped about the future of the vacant space left at 27 Front St. but he confirmed that they are keeping the space and have big plans for a renovation into a new concept store. Work on the premises could start as early as March.

“Information about the new store will be forthcoming shortly. I can however guarantee that the shopping public is going to be wowed,” he said.

    I am a female who is shorter than 5′ 4″ but not lacking in width. I am one of many in Bermuda who desperately seeks classic clothing designed for ladies who are 5’4″ and under. I would like to suggest 27 Front Street become a shop for the vertically challenged ladies who like clothing similar to that found in Talbot stores. Currently it seems that I must fly to Boston to purchase clothes designed to fit my frame.

      I believe that retailers only bring in clothes for people of average height / weight. As a tall person, it would be great to find a pair of pants that actually reach my ankles, a jacket that doesn’t appear to have 3/4 sleeves, or shoes above a size 10 that are in style! Sorry Ignorance is not bliss, but I think we tall people have it worse.

    • Common cent$ says:

      Unfortunately; retailers are forced to appeal to the masses when it comes to apparel. The population is just too small for a specialty store limiting that minimizes its customer base. A smaller boutique store of some sort in Hamilton would probably bring in specific items for you, but you will probably have to make purchase weather it fits or not- which is a bummer.

    PLP spokesman “shocked” and “gravely concerned.”

  3. New Bermudian says:

    And that’s why I don’t spend my clothing dollars here. I am not tall, and there is little in the way of selection for petites. Worse still, business clothing separates. I take a ‘regular’ size in bottoms, a petite size in tops, and though I’m not a larger size, I’m only 5’3″, and ‘regular’ sizes simply aren’t proportioned correctly for us shorter gals. It’s not just a matter of taking them up, they just don’t fit right.

    A Sephora-like cosmetics store would be awesome! Selling cosmetic products and tools from brands like Anastasia Beverly Hills, Too Faced, Glam Glow, Tarte, Kat Von D, etc would be very much welcomed. just sayin’
