One of the most attractively-sited retail units in Penarth is to become vacant at the end March this year when Windsor Gifts (between children’s outfitters Funky Monkey and the Windsor Bookshop in Windsor Road) closes its doors of the last time.
Proprietors Peter and Lynne Ellis who run the shop – and at one time also ran two others in the area – are winding down and going to “retire” .
The energetic couple have been part of the thriving retail scene in Penarth for 20 years. Lynne and Peter once also ran the Chico Furniture outlet in Penarth Road and also had a shop in Dinas Powys .
They’ve now decided to start taking things a little easier and to gradually wind-down from the hectic non-stop job of running the popular Windsors Gifts and Home Accessories business- although Peter is going to keep one of his other enterprises in operation after “retirement”.
Windsors carries a wide range of stock but one of the store’s signature specialities has been the supply of scented candles in many shapes and sizes. There’s now a special sale on to give loyal local customers and out-of-town visitors a final chance to pick up some bargains .
The shop at 9 Windsor Road is immediately adjacent to the main bus stop and within a few feet of the entrance to Windsor Arcade making it a prime candidate for retailers looking for premises with high customer footfall.
