The small independent shops in Henley, like my shop Laurence Menswear in Duke Street, I believe really add to the attraction of our great town for visitors. We do however, really rely on local people to shop with us all year around to survive. The independent shops in Henley offer an amazing array of items right on your doorstep – have you discovered them all yet?
Christmas is a particularly important time of the year for us and we know that many people are now shopping on line. On line shopping though doesn’t allow you to touch and really see things, and do you not lose that great feeling of making a purchase in a shop for that special someone? I like many other shop owners hope that we can also help with choosing your purchases – whether that be size, colour or show alternative ideas.
If you’ve already discovered a great Henley shop, please help us by sharing this with your friends, family and colleagues. We really do rely on word of mouth.
So this weekend, instead of sitting in traffic queues to get into Reading or looking for a last minute present on-line with high mailing costs, why not think about shopping locally in Henley?
We really would love to welcome you into our shops and would like to thank our customers for their support in 2014.
