Hunters at Home Chooses Tarvin.
Its not every day that a £1 million company chooses to set up store, if not exactly in Tarvin High Street, then just around the corner in Church Street. Not only have done just that, but Tarvin has the distinction of being the first Hunters at Home retail outlet in what is planned to be a nationwide chain of stores.

Sarah Price, owner and managing director, set up Hunters North 10 years ago to capitalise on her experience of furniture manufacturing, and the fit out of commercial interiors, to provide end to end services to businesses. This business continues to this day, but 2 years ago she decided to extend the brand by introducing a home interiors business. Hence Hunters at Home was born as a modern internet, e- commerce company, which now employs seven people and accounts for 20% of all Hunters sales.

Switch to 2013 and the decision to open their first bricks and mortar store. This might seem strange when so many other companies are rushing in the opposite direction and building up their digital channels. Sarah explains that "While retail customers like the convenience of searching and ordering on the internet, they often prefer to pick up the goods at their own time of choosing rather than having a home delivery than can be at anytime between say 8am and 1pm! This development is becoming so common that its coined the new term, Click and Collect. In any case why have all your stock hidden away in a warehouse when it could be stored, but on show, in a chain of shops."

Sarah has found other, established, Tarvin businesses, to be particularly welcoming and she is also already looking forward to developing a local base of suppliers. This has to be good news for the economy of both Tarvin and the surrounding area.

The official opening of Tarvin's Hunters at Home is on Saturday 14th September and everyone is welcome to the launch party. In addition to launching the latest range of Farrow & Ball paints and a new line of British-made Newgate clocks, visitors will have an opportunity to enter a raffle and to drink tea or coffee while looking around the other items on offer. Rumour even has it that there might even be the odd glass of Prosecco later in the day and certainly before the sun goes down over the yard-arm!
