Because the way we shop is changing...
We opened the door of our little independent shop in March 2015, at the rather wind-swept end of Charles Street in Milford Haven. The weather here can be shocking, the high street had its heyday some time ago, and people have been given new and exciting alternatives for their retail therapy. It is our belief however, that a thriving shopping centre is crucial to the identity of any town, and worth maintaining. So in an effort to 'adapt and survive', The Window is now expanding its market to include the world of online shopping, whilst maintaining a vibrant presence on the high street.
Since opening, we have stocked a weird and wonderful mix of new and second-hand curios, art, costume jewellery and homewares, incense and candles. Gradually the bric-a-brac took a back seat to more contemporary home furnishings, and a mesmerizing display of garden wind-spinners became a regular fixture. The shop was clearly developing into something of an 'alternative' haven, which led to an ever-increasing stock of ethnic items and clothing, sourced from Fair Trade suppliers. As products have been tried and tested over time, we are constantly improving the quality and value of what we have to offer. We now have a fantastic range of incense, for example, imported from India, with some of the best authentic fragrances.
We have met the challenge of declining foot-fall in our town head on, by always trying to bring something extra to the shopping experience for our customers. Social media plays an enormous part in 'keeping in touch' these days, and new product lines and special offers are regularly posted in Facebook updates. It is hoped that the addition of this online store will offer our regulars an expanded range of products, and also bring new custom from further afield. All items offered can be delivered by post or, if preferred, collected from the shop in person. The choice is yours!
We hope you will love the things we sell as much as we do. We also hope to offer genuine customer service second to none: if there is anything you would like to discuss before placing an order, just drop us an e-mail, or you may even be able to reach us for a live chat, by using Messenger on our Facebook page!
