Fashion Bug’s ever increasing product range, superior quality at affordable prices, as well as their attentive staff and up market showrooms have proved to be popular with both local shoppers as well as tourists who appreciate Fashion Bug’s offerings.
Tourist guides will get an opportunity earn points and redeem points by the transactions done at Fashion Bug outlets while also being entitled to purchase products from Fashion Bug by redeeming their points. Guides will be entitled for special promotions which will be done exclusively for the Tourist Guide Privilege Card.
