A very belated Happy New Year to all of you.
I must apologize for the tardy greeting, however this is the first opportunity I have had to sit down for my lunch in since Christmas! The back end of 2017 was super busy as we opened our second store at Ashton, in the Arcades. Since then I have been between the two shops trying to keeping both ticking over and managing all the stock. With hindsight maybe I should have waited for the New year before embarking on another new venture:) Both shops are doing well, and thank you for your custom, support, patience and understanding during this period. There are a few things that are running behind, like the birthdays, and pre loved but I will catch up soon and then in theory we will be back to normal.
Our January Sales have ended and its all new, new, new! I have already been out buying stock, and gaining some new brands for the shops.. all will be revealed in due course. I have also convinced Mr Magpie to part with some cash as we are going to be changing all our store lights at Stalybridge to new LED daylight panels. Lovely.
As its officially February today, I will take this opportunity to remind you about Valentines Day, (14th for those of you that need reminding) we have a lovely selection of jewellery ( The Carrie Elspeth and Shrieking Violet are stunning) and gifts for gents as well as the ladies. Plus the 1st of Feb marks the start of our annual fundraising for our furry four legged friends. This year we are raising money for Tameside & Glossop RSPCA & Muffin Pug Rescue. We’ll tell you more about this next week. For now,
