Advantages Nice co-ordinating ranges for babies & children.
Disadvantages Some sections can be cluttered.
I first came across Pumpkin Patch while on a shopping trip in Leeds. I popped in for a quick look, since babywear shops seem few & far between. I was really tempted to buy a few items, but since my 20 week scan was a few weeks away (and I planned on finding out whether baby was a he or a she), I forced myself to leave empty handed & vowed to return again.Shortly after, a branch of Pumpkin Patch opened in my hometown. I have since seen many branches of the store (on my further afield shopping trips) aswell as concessions within larger department stores. I can only assume that the company (from Australia) is now taking off in a pretty big way here.
When I returned to PP, I wasn't as taken with the selection as I had been on my first visit, but since I don't like come home empty-handed (and there was a multibuy sale on!) I persevered through the selection & left with several sleepsuits/vests & matching socks & a blanket.Babywear is situated at the entrance to the store & is generally well laid out with boyswear to the left & girlswear to the right. As you move through the store, the babywear leads into clothing for older children. The bottom of the store houses a small selection of maternity clothing & generally some sale areas.
I have found that lately there is always an offer on - such as 'buy 1 get 1 half price', or certain ranges at 40% off. Prices are usually pretty reasonable anyway. The designs tend to centre around a theme/colour scheme with each season, meaning that most of the range will mix and match well. Some clothing rails can be overcrowded & it becomes difficult to see the products on offer, but for the most part things are well laid out. Small gift/novelty items can also be found at the checkout.The staff have always been pleasant & welcoming. Checkout is usually swift & goods are packaged in sturdy cardboard bags, with (occasionally free) gift boxes on offer if the items are bought as a gift.
