While we continue to trade online we took the decision to temporarily close our bricks and mortar shop on Poole Quay yesterday evening. The shop has been open for 20 years now and we have probably never taken a day off from March 1st to September 30th in these 2 decades. It will mean we have more time to work on our online retail sites but this will also be an opportunity to blog a little about Dorset Gifts and let our customers in to our lives a little more – something we have never really had time to do. It’s 730am on Monday 23 March, the sun is shining, and I’m off for my last game of tennis with Spike no doubt for a while. Keep safe customers…..
