Our Story

In March 2014, The Corner Shop, Woolhampton, opened its doors. After years of frustration that there was nowhere nice locally to buy special gifts, Nina Peddie and Claire Dibble spotted a ‘To Let’ sign on The Corner Shop premises and realised that the time was right for them to open a shop themselves.

Friends from the school gate, the pair have a canny knack of knowing exactly what it is you and your family might be looking for, before you do! With backgrounds in PR, Nina and Claire keep their eye on the trends and source individual products which you won’t necessarily find on the high street. There are prices to suit every pocket and cover all ages.

Many customers prefer to browse themselves but Claire, Nina and their staff are always on hand to advise on gift ideas and suggestions should you require it. The combination of exciting new stock arrivals and the friendly, helpful service is why The Corner Shop has so many loyal and returning customers. Currently there is no on-line ordering facility but gifts can be posted out same day.

If you are short of time, and want your gift to look extra special, The Corner Shop offer a bespoke Gift Wrapping Service, so please don’t hesitate to ask!
