Heart to Home interiors shop: at the heart of the community
If you’ve come here from our website, Twitter or Facebook, you could be forgiven for thinking that Heart to Home was purely an online presence. Whilst we certainly do have a lovely online shop, we also have a “real life” shop – and that’s where it all started. We’re on the move!
Heart to Home Yorkshire
Heart to Home the shop is currently in Ripon, North Yorkshire, but we’re going to be moving to the gorgeous town of Wetherby very shortly. We thought it was high time we wrote about how important our shop is and how much we enjoy interacting with our customers.
In Ripon, we’ve got to know our customers really well, and we hope it will be much the same in Wetherby (just on a larger scale). Heart to Home is such a lovely shop, people often describe it as walking into someone’s home and browsing through all their wonderful bits of home decor. Sandra does a great job on styling the shop and dressing the displays, and the shop’s look perfectly reflects what our customers want to achieve in their own homes. We work hard to make every item appealing, charming and beautiful. As a result, the Heart to Home shop is just like wandering into a treasure trove full of all the kitchen and dining room ideas you’ve ever dreamed up!
It’s really important to us that we form a bond with the local community. After all, isn’t that the point of having a shop in the middle of a town? To be a constant presence, somewhere people can look forward to visiting, a place where people know they can go to see, pick up and feel items which quite simply put a smile on their face? That’s what we like to think!
People do wander in to our shop just for a browse, and we’re perfectly happy with that. We like to see people take their time, pick things up, hold them, try them out for size, imagining the item in their own home. We love it when people come in every week just to see what’s new in stock. Sandra has a real gift for remembering customers and recalling what they bought last time, and she always tries to suggest something they’d like this time. It’s great to see customers buying little bits here and there, obviously building up a theme for their own home and stamping their own style on it.
The new shop in Wetherby is in a gorgeous little street, in a Georgian building with a bow window. It’s so exciting! We just can’t wait to move in and get some pictures for you. And, of course, if you live in Wetherby or ever visit the area, you’ll have to pop in! It will be beautiful: Sandra is very creative and she will turn it into something amazing.
We’re looking forward to welcoming people from this busy town, whether that’s residents, folk coming in for the races, or tourists. It’s always been important to us to have a busy shop and to be in touch with people who support us. Here’s to Wetherby!
Don’t forget, we are offering free postage on everything from our website, which makes us the most competitively-priced place online to buy the items and brands we stock.
