Heals hosts Tourettes sufferer

Published on January 11th 2005.


Heals is a furniture store that is an Institution with which many Londoners have grown up with, selling very smart furniture at fairly smart prices, along with high quality home accessories ranging from (nicely) smelly candles to some great table ware. Gordo buys his wine glasses there, they are perfect for those of us who take our wine (semi) seriously, look great and are presented at brilliant prices. Under three quid. Get in there! The correct shape and feel, not one person has ever thought they weren't twelve quid plus 'crystal'. Gordo is also about to buy his crockery there as well, much depleted at the hands of a previous girlfriend who missed him but not the wall. Go there and look at the photo frames as well; they are amongst the best in town.
Just before Christmas Heals had top Tourettes sufferer Gordon Ramsey up for a book signing, and put some great champagne and canapés on. Mr. Ramsey is by all accounts a big cheese down in the smoke. Mind you, the Big Issue seller outside, keeping warm by the rather large candles burning most of the the Ordsall estate’s gas allowance for the week didn’t have a clue who the (and I quote) “F******” was. Gordo thought Mr. Ramsey and this chap would get along famously, but when he tried to introduce them on the way out all he could hear was “F*** Off” in stereo.
The usual PR-herded suspects were there, it's a pity noone let Manchester Confidential know earlier so they could let their A1 readers know in order that they could get some real spenders there.
Gordo met, amongst others, the recently installed CEO (that’s Gaffer to us lot) Andrea Warden. Looking very lovely in a tricky little black cocktail dress, Gordo gave her his card which was immediately slipped into her bra. Blimey, bit Casino Royale all that. There were unfortunately a few others tucked in there, a much disappointed Gordo noticed.
Heals is one of the few institutions from London that is needed in Manchester, so Gordo welcomes them. It sells furniture (lounge, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom) that is far better than Habitat, quirkier, is known for being well built (no change there then, eh Andrea?) and has a great range. Go and have a look round, you will be pleasantly surprised, not least by the prices. They have a sale on at the moment with a leather three piece in the window which is really great value.
It’s a Gordo Go.
Next to Harvey Nichols.

Don't look at the website, it's really poor and gives no clue as to what lies in store. Job for 2m Media, that!
