We all like to see more independent stores offering us a broader choice so it’s good news that a new gift shop has just opened in Peterborough.
Rather Gifted has now joined other independent retailers in Queensgate’s Westgate Arcade.
The gift and homeware shop brings a mix of unique home accessories, wall art, gift ideas, furnishings and much more for Peterborough shoppers to browse and buy.
“We’re extremely excited to be opening our shop in Westgate Arcade and to bring our unique products to the heart of Peterborough City Centre,” said owner, Ian Crampton.
With a successful store open in the historic town of Oundle, Rather Gifted’s plans to expand followed careful research into locations of increasing footfall and desirability.
Ian adds: “This is a prime location and the Arcade is full of like-minded independent retailers like us, which we are thrilled to complement with our different range of gift and homeware ideas. Please do come and visit us and help support independent companies.”
Two weeks ago, Queensgate Shopping Centre reported that 96% of its retailers are now open with more to come and the addition of Rather Gifted brings us even more variety.
Mark Broadhead, Centre Director at Queensgate Shopping Centre said: “Welcome to Ian and the team. We’re absolutely delighted to see new retailers joining the shopping centre, which is welcome news following a difficult period for retail. We’re seeing increasing numbers of people venturing out into the City Centre and I hope they make time to pop down the Westgate Arcade to discover Rather Gifted and the many other independent retailers we have to offer.”
Don’t forget to wear your face covering when you visit the shopping centre – Queensgate has recently launched its #CoverUpPeterborough campaign reminding everyone that masks need to be worn throughout the centre not just inside the stores.
