Business dream made reality thanks to Pop Up Shop

Catherine Ward, owner of affordable luxury home decor business, Spindle and Berry, has taken the next step in her retail business journey.

Catherine took her home business to the next stage this summer as she celebrated the opening of her retail unit in Albion Street, Shaldon.

Pop up the High Street, which gives retailers the chance to gain a real life experience of retailing on Torquay high street, provided Catherine with the opportunity to test her products on the high street in June of this year.

Councillor Richard Haddock, Torbay’s Executive Lead for Business, said: 
“Spindle and Berry is a fantastic example of how Pop up the High Street can motivate and inspire retailers to develop their business further. Catherine enjoyed a very successful tenancy at Pop up the High Street and we wish her every success in Shaldon.”
Catherine said: 
“The feedback I received whilst in Pop up the High Street was overwhelmingly positive and the business advice on offer is invaluable. I would definitely recommend Pop up the High Street to others. I was able to test the market and receive priceless face to face customer feedback, which is something you can’t get online.”
Spindle and Berry has enjoyed a busy first month’s trading and opened in time to celebrate Shaldon Regatta in August.

Catherine is now looking forward to what she hopes will be a busy autumn.
