The Emporium Somerset is two! Owners Sean and Cato Cooper invited customers, followers, friends and owners of the 40 separate crafts’ outlets at the Mantle Street store to celebrate two years of successful trading.
Since 2015 the former chapel has been transformed into a unique enterprise that provides ‘shop windows’ for a host of separate local businesses – offering an impressive range of artisan crafts – as well as Cato’s own chalk paint workshops.
Cato said, “We’ve had a marvellous two years and can’t thank our customers enough for all their support and loyalty. The business has grown significantly and gone from strength-to-strength. The number of visitors is going up year on year – and so are our sales. Thank you! It’s been a tremendous team effort and to mark this special anniversary we want to have a party to celebrate.”
The number of visitors to the store to share the birthday celebrations with music and a glass of wine and showed how far and wide the reputation of The Emporium has spread in just two years. Now for the future.
