The Story of Magpies Nest

Magpies Nest opened in March 2013 in a tiny, tiny shop in Stalybridge selling handbags and accessories. After 12 months, we had out grown the first shop and moved into a second larger shop. The business continued to develop and grow and in 2016 we made a huge move into a larger store and expanded into giftware.

We have always prided ourselves on putting our customers at the centre of what we do, and creating a positively memorable shopping experience. Our store is known for its quirky displays and excellent customer service. We source unique items supporting locally handmade businesses as well as stocking big brands usually found in larger high street and department stores.

Magpies Nest has won the Pride of Tameside Start up Business of the year in 2014, Pride of Tameside Retail Business of the Year 2015, FSB Retail business of the year 2016 for Greater Manchester. In 2014 we were selected as 1 of 100 independent UK businesses and invited to Downing Street as part of the national Small Business Saturday Campaign.

We are a team of 6 ladies and 1 Mr Magpie, and we are all passionate about the products we stock and we love our jobs at the Nest.
