Delivering great retail service since 1987
We have been high street retailers, trading from our store in Kingswinford, West Midlands since 1987. Our store specialises in cards, gifts, Thorntons confectionery and balloons. We were awarded Hallmark Cards Retailer of the Year in 2008 and in 2010 won a ‘Reta’ as best greeting card retailer for the Wales & West Midlands region. We pride ourselves on our store being friendly and welcoming, our staff helpful and informative, and our aim is to create an environment where customers can browse comfortably and shopping is a pleasurable and personal experience; this is how we hope you will feel shopping on our website too.
As with any high street store, the range of gifts we can offer in our shop is limited by our physical size and we would love to offer a wider selection; this is where shopforsomethingspecial.com comes in! We already stock both Thorntons confectionery and a significant range of balloons which we deliver locally, plus many well known and slightly more unusual gift brands, however we know that the scope of gift ideas we can offer our customers online is so much greater.
In the summer of 2015 it was decided that my daughter Sarah would join the business with the specific task of expanding our gifting range through an online business which benefits both our existing customers, and also enable us to offer our services to a much wider audience too. www.shopforsomethingspecial.co.uk was borne out of a desire to take our customer ethos, retail experience and a greater selection of products to more local people through a click and collect service from the store, but also to a much wider online audience across the country and eventually worldwide.
It is our plan not only to bring you a wide range of unique and interesting gifts but also to find and offer opportunities for extra special services such as beautiful gift wrapping and personalisation, which really does take gifting above and beyond what you might find elsewhere on the high street or with other online retailers.
Our business name is Something Special and we would like to welcome you to our online business. Our aim is to bring you the same great shopping experience online which we offer our store customers, so if you have any comments whether they be good or bad about either products you buy or the service we offer please get in touch and let us know. Feedback is really important to us in improving what we do and ensuring you get the best possible products and service from us.
We love talking to and hearing from our customers!
We really hope you love shopping with us.
Best Wishes on behalf of all the team
