A homeware and bedding company is set to take over an empty unit on Harrogate’s James Street.
Piglet in Bed, which was founded by Jessica Hanley from her mother’s West Sussex garden shed in 2017, will open its first UK store in the former Mint Velvet unit.
It comes after the fashion retailer moved across the road into the old Joules unit earlier this month.
The company will sell a wide range of linen and cotton bedding, tableware, home accessories and nightwear.
Rhiannon Johns, head of brand, told the Stray Ferret:
“We love the feel of the town, there are plenty of cool independents that we’re excited to collaborate with, great places to eat and beautiful surroundings.
“The position on James Street is ideal being at the very centre of the hustle and bustle.
“We believe Harrogate will be a place for establishing regular customers but also raising brand awareness from the many visitors that come here.”
The company will employ eight members of staff at the new shop.
Ms Johns added:
“Ultimately, we’re really looking forward to having a physical space where we can meet and connect with new and existing members of our community of comfort lovers – we can’t wait to meet everyone.”
Piglet in Bed hopes to open the Harrogate store by mid-December.
