Once Indiana arrived and I got more into blogging I was lucky enough to come across Beebies Baby Store online and I fell in love straight away! I instantly started following on Twitter and always loved that if you tweeted them you would get such a warm, personal reply back. Then I discovered how local they are to me and this made me love them even more as I'm very much a believer in supporting local businesses to you! The main reason I think they're great is because they offer something different to those retail giants on the high street. Quoting from the website "Beebies Baby Store is your one stop baby, toddler & maternity shop. We offer a wide range of items from both small and larger brands to fit all types of budget and requirement." The owner Ami Holt is very hands on and personally chooses each item that they sell. This means that they only sell great quality products that she believes you actually need... brilliant! They even offer services such as a FREE personal shopper and wrap and send. What more could you want really?
It seems quite a few of you agree with me as they have recently been short listed in the 'Best Independent Retailer' category in the Loved by Parents Awards. So to celebrate they are holding a huge weekend full of fun and competitions to help spread the word and get the votes they deserve to win. They are trying to get #welovebeebies trending so make sure to keep tweeting!
