Craft Corner on the move!Published Tuesday, 17th November 2015
Another popular town centre business has moved to new premises.
The Craft Corner and Bears’ Den has relocated from its previous home in the Riverside Precinct to Rotherham’s High Street, joining the likes of Hamby’s, The Makers’ Emporium, Patchwork Pig and Things That Boys’ Like/Yella Brick Road.
Owners Keith and Dawn Topliss made the move to their new larger store on Saturday 14th November as they celebrated 20 years of trading in Rotherham Town Centre.
As well as offering a range of craft-making materials, Craft Corner is the only stockists of Steiff and Charlie Bears in Rotherham.
“We are delighted to be moving to a new bigger store on High Street,” said Keith. “The move means we will be able to bring in new ranges, and also hold more of our craft classes and demonstrations, which have proved very popular.”
Dawn added: “We’d like to thank all our very loyal customers who have supported us over the last 20 years – hopefully our move to larger premises will stand us in good stead to continue for another 20 years!”
Rotherham Council’s Advisory Cabinet Member for Housing and the Local Economy, Cllr Denise Lelliott, said: “Rotherham’s High Street is becoming a real hotspot for independent shops and businesses – so the Craft Corner and Bears’ Den will certainly be in good company!
“It’s great to see a long established business like this continue trading from bigger premises with support from the Council’s Business Development Grant Scheme. I am sure they will continue to thrive in their new home on the High Street.”
