New Feature Friday!
Featuring All Occasion Sweet Shop 9th of November
For this week's edition of Feature Friday here on UniqueLoveStyle, I would like to welcome a fun and family run business, All Occasion Sweet Shop!
Really this is a dream website where you can browse such a fabulous selection of sweet hampers, retro sweets and sweet jars for all ages. They developed the on-line store from their earlier old fashioned sweets shop based in Lancashire.
History of All Occasion Sweet Shop
Throughout the 1960`s and 70`s the shop itself, known then as `Old Fred`s Toffee Shop`, had been a favourite calling place of one of the older partners now of the All Occasion Sweet Shop.
When Old Fred sadly passed away in the 1980`s the shop progressed through various ownerships and various trades until, in the late 1990`s, we were lucky enough to buy the shop ourselves and to set about restoring it to its former glory as a good old fashioned sweets shop.
The huge success of this business over the years is what has led us now into the magical world of on-line trading, but our philosophy in running the business remains exactly the same as Old Fred`s philosophy all those years ago ....
....to brighten up the dullest of days ……. to put a smile on the face of all who visit us ……. and to help make and revive some wonderful memories!!
As soon as their page loads I'm quickly drawn to the bright, welcoming and boldness to the layout which makes it very eye catching for customers. There are also clear categories placed which helps to direct you to your browsing needs, including what they can provide for party sweets to weddings sweets!
I had the pleasure to interview David who has been very informative about the business and I couldn't wait to hear more about his own thoughts on his work!
