New gift store for St Austell

Mon 23rd May 2016

A St Austell couple has launched a new gift store at White River Place Shopping Centre in the heart of St Austell.   

The Kernow Gifts Store will stock everything from greeting cards to gifts and souvenirs and focus heavily on the wedding market, with customers able to buy and hire wedding décor for their special day.    

 The store, facing Aylmer Square in the centre of town, will be run by Bonnie Swiggs and her partner Daniel Davis, who already run the Cornish Candy Company shop also based in White River Place.   

Daniel Davis said: “At the candy shop we sell sweets and local produce, including supplying sweets and other wedding accessories to couples who are getting married. We were getting a lot of enquiries about providing other equipment to hire for weddings, and at a time whilst we are planning our own wedding, it seemed clear there was a need for a local company in St Austell to cater for this market.   

“We have wanted a second store for some time now as the Cornish Candy Shop just isn’t big enough for us, so we are delighted to be expanding into this new venture just over the road.”  

 Kernow Gifts Store will offer high end greetings cards, gifts, and accessories, as well as wedding equipment to hire.   

Richard Hurst, Manager of White River Place, said: “Daniel and Bonnie are extremely passionate about their business and we are delighted they have decided to open a new store here at White River Place to sell even more great products.   

“We always try to support independent businesses where possible, so it is great to be adding another local store to the selection of popular high street stores we have here in St Austell already.”   

Kernow Gifts Company officially opened on Saturday 21st May, and will be open every week from Monday to Friday, 10am – 4.30pm, on Saturday 10am – 5pm and Sunday 11am – 3pm.
