On Valentine's Day, staff from across the Nice 'n' Naughty stores and head office walked in to find Cupid had visited!
Staff from across the national retail chain of fully licensed adult boutique stores and HQ working on Valentine's Day walked in to find a little bit of extra love, courtesy of the Senior Management team behind the award-winning chain.
The staff had already taken it upon themselves to share some love with their customers over the Valentines build up and weekend, by giving gift wrapped
roses to every customer, along with having a box of Thornton's chocolates on the counter for the customers to enjoy while they browsed the stores.
Outside, the stores were bedecked with balloons too, to welcome the customers into the stores, despite the threats of dreaded stormy weather.
The staff working on the day had no idea that they were instore for a visit from Cupid, but they all walked into a little surprise, with chocolates from Hotel Chocolat, bottles of wine, Amazon vouchers and bouquets of flowers for
all the staff, then when lunchtime hit, a surprise delivery of heart shaped pizzas turned up at every location.
"Our staff always go above and beyond to ensure the customer has exceptional service, and a range of beautiful products to show they love their partners; so, we just wanted to show our staff that we love them too! I know some will not be getting
home till later in the day after they finish their shift, and may not have had the valentine's day they wanted, but it's important to us that we show the team some extra love on Valentines" Philip Charter-Price, the National Retail Manager based in
the Brighton store, knows the importance of the team the company has, and was only too happy to shower the love on them.
Members of the team in the head office and website were not left out with Trish Murray, Retail Director, ensuring cupid had visited their head office in Warrington. "We are all such a well-oiled machine, with the stores and head office working
in unison with each other to ensure customers in the boutiques or online get the same level of service and commitment, and it is important that we recognise our biggest asset"
The company are currently opening a new licensed
boutique store in the heart of Warrington town centre, having refurbished their Chester store in a similar way, that will change the way people look at "sex shops" and 2020 promises to be a rocket ship of a year for the company!
Licensed shop which changed from Clone Zone to Nice 'n' Naughty in February 2009.
Review from Les, August 2019: A gem of a find
Visited Brighton over Pride for the first time this year, and found this perfect shop on St James St. Been to Brighton before, but never
here, and what a mistake. It's a fantastic shop with really helpful staff and a vast array of products, and ended up with a bag full of joy! I will definitely be back and will happily tell all my friends to pay it a visit when they are in Brighton. A
true gem in the adult shops.
Chris visited the Brighton Nice 'n' Naughty
I was greeted by a really nice girl (think she was the naughty
one LOL). Something that was a surprise in the shop, as normally when I nip in to a gay store, you normally get ignored by the staff!
It had some really nice bits, and seemed to cater for us gay boys and girls really well. I ended up getting a
couple of dvds on a multi buy offer, and to my surprise was actually given some customer service!
They had a suggestion box on the counter, and the boy and girl there were really sweet and helpful.
going to wish the new guys n gals there a lot of luck for the future, nice to see a shop that looks after its customers and willing to get them what they want in a shop.
Review from ETO's Mystery Shopper, May 2018: Enjoyable
R18s at £30, £25 and clearance lines at £10, all with multi buy offers.
An enjoyable retail experience with a friendly and helpful manager.
August 2013: 15th Anniversary
Nice 'n' Naughty opened its first store in Chester on 31st August 1999. The shop's management has spent the 15 years modernising its image and making for an attractive and
enjoyable shopping experience.
The store now boasts a colourful shop front and sponsorship agreements with local football, cricket and netball teams. Managing director Simon Prescott told the Leader:
I never would
have thought of myself as a pioneer when we challenged Chester City Council's view in 2001 that adult stores should have blacked out windows, it just seemed right we be allowed to put mannequins on display. In reality Nice 'n' Naughty set a new trend,
which was not only followed by our other stores, but many of those in the industry.
The policy has worked well and the firm has expanded to 11 stores from Brighton to Newcastle.
News, May 2013: Award Nomination

Review from Tina, March 2009: Accolades Merited
I know that you have a mass of reviews
for this shop but I had to say that because of the reviews I visited the shop today and found that all of the accolades were extremely merited - very friendly and unobtrusive staff (how do they get that balance right?) excellent range and good prices -
both in and outside the sale.
I will definitely be going back!
