Three new businesses welcome Hatton Village shoppers

NOT one but three new businesses have opened up in time for Christmas at Hatton Shopping Village.

At a time when many highstreet businesses have been forced to close by the pandemic, Hatton has been bucking the trend despite the uncertainties and obstacles 2021 has brought.

Situated outdoors in the countryside, the shopping village has enabled its visitors to benefit from plenty of fresh air and space to socially distance.

The new additions include Dotty’s & Doodles, Silver Tree Bakery, and Stitched Up.

Dotty’s & Doodles offers a selection of cards and gift-wrap, home decor, gifts and accessories for animal lovers including a dog-friendly Christmas cake. And dogs are also most welcome at Dotty’s, with treats behind the counter!

Owner Rachel Watts said: “I have always loved Hatton and I’m delighted to be opening my first independent shop here. It’s an exciting time for us and we could not be more thrilled.”

Silver Tree Bakery opens this weekend and brings over 20 years of industry experience to Hatton., selling freshly-baked breads, pastries, cakes, and savouries with locally sourced ingredients.

Stitched Up is a bridal alterations specialist as well as offering wedding dress cleaning. The shop is by appointment only to provide a dedicated and professional bridal alteration experience.

Country World owner Johnnie Arkwright said: “Being in the countryside has been a real plus for the small local independent retailers at Hatton.

“We are thrilled to welcome several new, unusual shops to complement our ‘Not on The High Street’ rule – just in time for Christmas Shopping and our Outdoor Christmas Markets.

“It is amazing how resilient our small retailers have been with the forced closures of the last 18 months but equally how keen our customers have been to support our local independent shops.”.

The Christmas markets take place every weekend until the 19 December 19, selling a range of locally supplied Christmas gifts.

Visitors can also enjoy live Christmas singers and hot toddies from Alfie’s Café.
