Shop’s new location after 15 years
INDEPENDENT gift shop owner Vanessa Savia would like customers to know her business has moved.
Savia, which sells gifts, cards and jewellery, was based at 53 High Street for 15 years but has moved to number 89, next to the Starbucks cafe.
Mrs Savia said: “After 15 years hidden in lower High Street, we decided we were outgrowing the shop and needed to move.
“After a week at the new premises, next to Starbucks, we were amazed that we shocked a lot of customers, who had thought we had left the town.
“They were so relieved to find us further up High Street.”
She added: “We appreciate our loyal customers, many who have become friends, and look forward to our new customers.
“We would never leave Ashford, a town centre that works hard together, with shopkeepers that help each other with a sense of camaraderie.”
The shop is open 9.30am-5.30pm daily, except Sunday when it is open 11am-3pm.
