Shops I love in whitchurch

Lorna’s House

Lorna’s House has three sister shops in Whitchurch. One for gifts and home accessories, one for children’s clothing and the other for women’s fashion accessories. Each is a treasure trove in their own right and the shop windows are a delight to look at. They truly transform the high street.

Lorna’s Gift Shop

Lorna’s House has different floors and is a treasure chest to explore. Women’s accessories, clothes and home interiors. This is the importance of having independent retailers on your high street. They make a difference to the aesthetics of the high street and the community you live in. They give an overall impression of the town that we live in.

Benjamin’s is a great Deli and place to eat

I am never disappointed by the service at Benjamin’s

Benjamin’s is a little jewel on the high street for lunch and has a great Deli. Packed with delicious food and drink items some of which are sourced locally. You always receive a warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble .

Shops like this, with a tasteful frontage really do justice to a small market town high street and Shropshire Council really should be promoting this sort of town regeneration.

Clothing and accessories shop for women

Their shop window always looks so stylish and inviting . They have a range of Italian clothing and accessories at affordable prices.

Independent shopping is important.

For me , I have a particular satisfaction in sourcing from UK suppliers and artisans.

I really hope that we can reverse the decline of our high street. We need more regeneration and independent retailers are a vital part of that.

Let’s go back to community and the high street that most of us were accustomed to when growing up.
