May 2012 entires
Thursday 03 May 2012
For the last 8 months Pili Pala has been working out of a little shop called Bro-Mor in Aberystwyth. As well as stocking Pili Pala organic childrens clothes Broc-Mor also stocks a small range of gifts, cushions and jewellery. A customer recently told me that our shop is like a sweet shop for adults. That made me smile. As the horror stories on yet another high street shop closing down continue, I am pleased to say that our little shop so far is doing ok. As mentioned, it is only a small shop, but the local people of Aberystwyth and the tourists that visit seem to like us being here and we in turn are ever so grateful for their custom. As much as I embrace the age of shopping on-line, there is still something irreplaceable about coming into a little independent shop. It usually smells nice (depending on type of shop of courser) and staff aren't afraid to say hello and actually offer to help. Broc-Mor likes to offer little extras as well...for example gift wrapping and personalised gifts at no extra charge. Love and attention is constantly given, ensuring that stock looks fresh and caters to our customers needs and wants. This makes a difference. The need for people to shop local has never been more pressing in some ways and with out local support little Broc-Mor just couldn't survive. However, local support must also be earned..we can't just throw a pile of rubbish on the shelves and expect people to buy it... careful chosen stock of good quality for a fair price and first class service is demanded by our customers and rightly so. If not, be prepared to lose out to Google.
