The words a lot of small and independent businesses dread.
For many, it does what it says on the tin. It signifies a day (or a fortnight as it now seems) when big corporates and online brands reel customers in with that elusive deal.
It can be quite a worrying time with affects felt throughout November. Christmas shoppers hold back and it becomes a game of who blinks first.
We’ve said this before, but if you can, this month take a wander up Gloucester Road and soak up the entrepreneurial atmosphere. The number of independents and range of shops is pretty impressive – there really is something for everyone!
It’s one of the few places in Bristol seeing new businesses open up. Despite the challenges of the last 18 months, the infamous Gloucester Road spirit has not been dampened. In fact it’s the opposite…we are all pulling together as we look forward to a PROPER Christmas!
The shops and salons up and down our amazing road are bursting at the seams with beautiful individual gifts you can’t find on Amazon. You may be surprised to find all you need on your doorstep, and if you shop here not there, you’ll be supporting an individually run or family business.
So pop in and see us! We have Christmas gifts for everyone and every budget. Our gift vouchers are super popular, especially at this time of year. If you know someone who loves a pamper, they can enjoy any of our fabulous luxurious treatments anytime next year, and you can spend as little or as much as you want on one (what’s not to like!) If you’re looking for a gift that’s beautifully natural and organic, try our brand-new Estime & Sens skincare gift boxes. You can’t get them anywhere else in Bristol, we absolutely love them and are sure you will too!
Thank you for your love and support, not just from us but every business on Gloucester Road.
