1st August

‘Something Different’ will open at Telford Centre on Saturday 1st August, showcasing a collection of independent retailers who offer bespoke and unique products and artisan food.

The temporary store will house independent retailers who through this pandemic have lost opportunities and income, due to events been cancelled.  This new venture gives local small businesses the chance to showcase their products.  Some of the retailers are regular independents from our monthly events and some will be new businesses selling within the Telford Centre for the first time.

The ‘Something Different’ store is a new venture in partnership with Victoria James, who have been working with Telford Centre now for several years, organising our annual wedding exhibition and also our artisan food events.  Telford Centre prides itself in helping to curate local independent businesses that can bring something different to offer our customers, this partnership has allowed us to do this.

The range of products on offer in the store will include unusual gifts including enamelled and intricately decorated eggs, handmade pebble art, glass and wooden frames, plaques and cards and a collection of crystals, holistic, healing and spiritual gifts.

Customers can also expect to find ladies Italian leather bags and handmade sterling silver jewellery, plus much more.

Katie Broome, Marketing Manager at Telford Centre said “We have always welcomed independent retailers at Telford Centre as we know our customers value the point of difference they bring. We have been unable to offer the mall space and create the events we would usually have at the centre such as our gift fairs and artesian food events, but we hope that ‘Something Different’ will provide customers with the variety they would still like to see.”

‘Something Different’ will open on 1st August on New Row Mall at Telford Centre - Thursday to Sunday 10.00am to 16.00pm. For further details and a list of the traders and their products visit
