From Construction to Retail!
When people ask us our background and our story, they're often surprised that two sisters used to work in the construction industry, one as head of marketing and the other as a project manager. But when the business was sold, a wonderful opportunity came up in our home town - a freehold, three storey Georgian building - which looked horrendous but had immense potential. We weren't sure at the time whether this was a building project or a retail venture, but after hundreds of late nights, sweat and tears - Persora was born. Packed to the brim with Scandinavian inspired and designed products from leading makers including Bloomingville and House Doctor.
Today, our 'mini department store' as it has come to be known by the locals, retails huge brands including those such as Katie Loxton, Mews, Estella Bartlett, Klippan and so many more to name just a few of our favourites.
After lockdown, the first thing we're doing is launching our rand new in-store patisserie and coffeehouse where you can also enjoy a tipple or two from British artisan makers of gin, ale, rum and anything else that may tickle your pickles so to speak! Even better? We'll join you in enjoying it in our garden space with the sun shining and shopping bags packed full of gorgeous treats.
