The feedback is that people have really enjoyed having something like this – many have said ‘this is just what Peterborough – and Westgate Arcade – needs!’. It just shows that if you can get the right balance of wellbeing and ethical options, it can be the perfect place to succeed. We are very much looking forward to the future; we want to build on this momentum and welcome any ethical and conscious souls to be part of our tribe.”
Queensgate’s Centre Director Mark Broadhead added: “We are delighted that Soul Happy is staying. Wellbeing is so important and it’s great to know people can come here to Westgate Arcade for a pick-me-up or some self-care when they need it. Westgate Arcade is renowned for its independent retailers selling unique and quirky products and services so it’s great to keep Soul Happy on board.”
