The Barn

Monday, March 16th, 2015

The Gift Barn at Lower Stretton is brimming with cards for all occasions and fabulous gifts for all ages. The cards range from a great selection of children’s age and gender specific cards, to the hilarious Cath Tate Comedy Cards. On the shelves there is a wide selection of candles, diffusers, scarves, jewellery, beauty products, plus areas with gifts specific to gentlemen, children, babies and more! Customers keep coming back because they know they will be able to get a great card and the perfect present and also get it nicely gift wrapped if required by a member of staff.

Sue Williams (also known as ‘The Card Lady’ to many of the regular customers!) has worked at The Hollies Lower Stretton since it opened in 2007. To begin with the shop only had a small collection of cards and Sue has loved being involved in the growth of the gift and card section at Lower Stretton, which now resides in a large extension added to the side of the shop. Sue orders a lot of the products in herself, especially the cards.  This combines well with some products coming over from Ed and Angie over at Little Budworth. Sue was so proud when The Barn at Lower Stretton along with The Barn at Little Budworth won a Reta Award in 2014 for ‘Best Non-Specialist Independent Retailer of Greeting Cards’, which proved that all their hard work had been recognised and celebrated. It is clear how much passion Sue has for her job and the company as a whole, and it is reflected in the ever changing gift area. We can’t wait to see the next delivery of products!
