There’s never a dull moment over at Plush Towers. I write with big news – we’re on the move! Unfortunately the time in our Edenbridge warehouse has come to an end, we’ve looked for commercial premises within the vicinity and there is very little currently available, and what there is isn’t suitable or is twice the price we’re used to. We’ll be really sorry to say goodbye to all of our lovely local customers and I’m devastated to leave our staff behind, it certainly hasn’t been an easy decision to make and it’s one we’ve deliberated long and hard over. We’ve enjoyed getting to know our local customers and I understand that no longer having our fabric loveliness on your doorstep will be a big blow for some but don’t forget…. We won’t be disappearing from your lives completely – you can still order online (plus you get sweeties in your parcel that way – every cloud…)
Whilst we know this news is going to be disappointing for some, we also know that it’ll make some other people very happy as we’re relocating to the Cathedral city of Peterborough which is about 80 miles north of London on the border of East Anglia and the East Midlands.
Peterborough is where I grew up so I’m excited to be returning to my home town and hooking up with old friends. The decision was made easier by the fact that there’s a glut of commercial property that is way more affordable than in Kent. Our new warehouse (well there’s 2 warehouses actually!) is in Werrington, a few minutes the north of the city centre. We still plan on being open Monday – Saturday for customers to come in and browse but we might need a few weeks after the move before we can open the doors.
Stay tuned for our exact moving date, we are aiming for 29th April but this may change by a week or two. If you’ve not been to visit us in our Edenbridge warehouse and want to do so then you’re advised to come along before Wednesday 27th April. We’ll let you know when we’re ready to receive visitors in Peterborough.
We will need staff in Peterborough so if you are interested in working for us we will be recruiting people to fulfil our website orders and help our customers in house. Please email your CV to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are customer focused, hard working and have sewing experience. We have been overwhelmed with the response for our call for CVs and won’t be accepting any more applications for the post for the time being. Thank you!
For those of you that shop online, this news shouldn’t really affect you at all. We are hoping not to have any disruption of service *crosses fingers* but we’ll keep you informed if we run in to any difficulties.
Please wish us luck (and lasting sanity) as we pack up both our house and the warehouse over the coming weeks. Madness!
