Mon 23rd May 2016
St Austell couple has launched a new gift store at White River Place Shopping Centre
in the heart of St Austell.
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.
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.
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.”
Gifts Store will offer high end greetings cards, gifts, and accessories, as
well as wedding equipment to hire.
Richard Hurst, Manager of White River
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.
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.”
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 –
