As many of you are aware we have been trying to find a new home for our Balloon Boutique. Well, after many weeks of searching we have found our new home right under our noses. We have come full circle and chosen to open our next shop inside our new warehouse!
We have looked around many locations over the last few weeks but never found anything just right for our customers. Parking was a huge deal for us, we have seen folk walking around town with bags of balloons, many getting ruined en-route to the car as they are blown down the bailey head! Location was the second headache, we wanted to be in town but easy to access, staying in Oswestry was also a must.
Space, fancy dress or no fancy dress. In the end we have opted for fancy dress being available in the warehouse but not on show in the shop. We felt that the space taken to show off our huge fancy dress range was just too limiting. Our Fancy dress can be viewed on request and indeed our website has the full range of fancy dress to view in-store or indeed in the comfort of your arm chair at home.
The next important factor we had to think about was build space. We carry out some huge corporate balloon build jobs and sometimes a large space is essential for building our balloons. Parking to load the balloons into the van (or vans) is also again important.
Then we have the problem of where to store our Inflated Balloons, many of which are posted out to customers all over the UK. With many boxes leaving us everyday, storage and access for our postal services was a key factor in location.
In the end our decision was very easy. Our Warehouse almost next door to Royal Mail's sorting office was perfect in almost every way. The parking is reserved, free and right outside. The warehouse space is huge, we have office space to create our personalised banners and space for a shop. Our shop will continue to be the 'go to' location for quality, professional balloons to help you celebrate any occasion. We are right on the outskirts of town in a location that everyone has been past on their way to Royal Mail to collect that special parcel.
We look forward to welcoming you to our new balloon boutique in the very near future!
