Summary
For Jean, Eve, Irene, Betty and Rosemary, working at the exclusive Heyworth's department store in Cambridge is a dream come true. Once the girls step inside the elegant building - surrounded by luxurious dresses and beautiful accessories - the hardships of their own lives are temporarily forgotten. Serving a variety of curious customers, from glamorous gypsy queens to genuine royalty and stuffy academics to the city's fashionable elite, the store is a place where these young women can forge successful careers, under the ever-watchful eye of flamboyant owner Mr Heyworth. Set during the closing years of the Second World War, and moving into the 1950s, 'The Shop Girls' perfectly recreates the camaraderie and friendship of these fascinating young women, and brings to life the thrilling hustle and bustle of a fashionable department store
