It may be hard work for retailers on the high street now, but Somerset based Country House Gift Company is showing its commitment to valuing local shoppers in opening its second store in Wedmore! Opening its doors in Wedmore for the first time last Saturday, the Country House Gifts team treated the many browsers and shoppers to a celebratory glass of fizz and nibbles.
The Country House Gift Company was started by Somerset business woman Elaine Coles, who opened her first store in Winscombe in 2012, having originally started the business by selling unique gifts and cards from her home near Lympsham. The shop in Winscombe went on to achieve national award-winning status in 2015 as one of the best new gift retailers in the UK in The Greats Gift Retailer Awards.
Of the new store opening in Wedmore’s popular Borough Mall, Elaine says “We are delighted to have opened our new store in Wedmore and especially thrilled to see so many people on our opening day. We favour locally made or British gifts, and intend to compliment the exceptional range of independent retailers already established in this popular village.”
The new Country House Gift Company store, once open on the 8th, will be found at 4 Borough Mall, Wedmore, BS28 4EB, and the Winscombe store is located on Woodborough Road, not far of the A38.
