ALL THE LATEST NEWS, VIEWS AND STORIES FROM AROUND YOUR LOCAL AREA:JULY/AUGUST CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF SUCCESSFUL TRADING!


How time flies! Ten years ago Cockermouth resident Tracey Atkinson applied for a job and a decade later she is still revelling in working at Peter Rabbit™ and Friends.


Now if ‘our Tracey’ was completely honest, she’d admit that all those years ago she didn’t know all there was to know about Beatrix Potter’s mischievous creation. She does now and so does the rest of the team... take the manager, Karen Taylor. She joined Peter Rabbit and Friends after working for the firm who supplies the shop’s extensive range of soft toys, their popular alphabet letters, hand-painted figurines and nowadays a full complement of sustainable bamboo children’s plates, bowls and cutlery. Then there is Annette Harrison, another of the shop’s worthy originals, who has been responsible for the shop’s eye- catching window displays and much of the visual merchandising since it opened.


Have you visited recently, a year or two ago, or never? Peter Rabbit™ and Friends in Lake Road Keswick, is a lovely little shop with an oak-clad frontage. Operating on two floors, yes you’ll find Thomas the Tank Engine and Winnie the Pooh upstairs, plus dinosaurs and Jellycats on the premises too - the team select and purchase the stock they’ve learned both locals and visitors love. Starting with books, including the original tales, to pictures and classic nursery prints, cushions and throws, contemporary pottery and kitchenware ideal for the modern family kitchen - the list is almost endless. One more recent speciality comes courtesy of The Royal Mint, who for the last few years have produced an annual collection of limited edition silver-proof 50p pieces, each featuring many of Beatrix Potter’s most famous and best-loved characters in full colour. There’s still time to collect one, or nearly all, the coins issued in 2017 and 2018, something ideal to save for the grandchildren or yourself. Karen’s been busy recently enhancing her offer for Baby Showers, Christenings and other special occasions too! We also have newer ranges for pre-schoolers based on the successful Peter Rabbit animated series, featuring the very popular Lily Bobtail!


Now you’ll see why so many people describe Peter Rabbit™ and Friends as a treasure trove, the little shop that like a Tardis, has room for so many fascinating gifts and presents.


To celebrate the shop’s 10th birthday, Karen has gone to town! First, from now until the end of September, there’s 10 percent off all full-price stock on presentation of the shop’s advert. Second, you might know the team run a loyalty card scheme. Rush to the shop and there will be two extra stamps for you when you join up, meaning you are well on your way to filling the card to receive a 25 percent discount on a purchase. Oh and no birthday celebration would be complete without presents and Karen is giving 50 of them away to random spenders during the shop’s big birthday week (August 12th to 18th), while rumour has it that Peter Rabbit himself may cut a ribbon too!
