Op­por­tu­nity for in­de­pen­dent buSi­neSSeS

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Mp Calls In On Revamped Shopping Centre -

Park Mall’s Made in Ash­ford store has wel­comed five new lo­cal busi­nesses.

The Lit­tle Red Hen Jew­ellery, Ni­cola Jen­nings Art, Mul­berry Glass Art, Juju Art and Som­nus and Seb have joined ex­ist­ing busi­nesses in the out­let.

Made in Ash­ford opened in Oc­to­ber 2015 to a pos­i­tive re­sponse from shop­pers at­tracted by the unique prod­ucts avail­able in the in­de­pen­dent-led shop. The store of­fers some­thing a lit­tle more per­sonal and unique.

Also mak­ing a re­turn to Made in Ash­ford are Aye Aye, Lucy Alice De­signs, Snap­dragon and Mini Med­ley. Jo Wynn-Carter, town cen­tre re­gen­er­a­tion man­ager, said: “Hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to test a busi­ness on the high street is some­thing that many in­de­pen­dent busi­nesses would like to do, but those op­por­tu­ni­ties are few and far be­tween. “In­de­pen­dent re­tail­ers are at the core of the re­vi­talised Park Mall and we wel­come th­ese busi­nesses to Made in Ash­ford.”
