New Ormskirk store gets personal

Hitherto a purely online retailer, Michelle Henriksen is looking forward to opening her first bricks and mortar store on August 20: Personalised Gifts in Ormskirk. Bespoke housewares will be among the gifts available.

Mugs, aprons, chopping boards, and coasters are among the products that Michelle hand makes or prints by hand. Almost everything in her store can be personalised with names, special messages and dates.

Discussing her reasons for opening a physical store, Michelle explains: “Following the pandemic, it’s proving more important than ever that people support local. Equally, I believe in-person shops are becoming increasingly popular again, with more people wishing to purchase their gifts right away. One reason is an increase in people who are focusing on sustainability and the impact of their carbon footprint.”

Michelle highlights the problem of “heaps of plastic packaging and the impact of constant deliveries” which are associated with online shopping, along with the “hassle or returns” or “long waiting times.”
