Lifestyle store Armstrong Ward can come to you thanks to its personal shopping service in Kendal.
Armstrong Ward has a free, virtual and personal shopping service, offering advice and support on buying anything from gifts to small and large purchases for interiors.
It means customers can find what they are looking for from the comfort of their own home, using the vast expertise and in-store know-how of owners Jacqueline and Andrew. The pair have been in the interiors business for over three decades.
“We hope to take the worry out of the best part of gift-giving, making someone’s day,” explains Jacqueline.
“Whether you love or hate shopping, it can be an overwhelming and time-consuming task at any time of the year.”
“We’re here to lend a helping hand with choosing anything from what to give a newborn baby, to finding thankyou presents and birthday gifts for every age including those celebrating the decades.”
“Many customers pick up the phone and we chat as we wander around the store. With others we FaceTime so they can see what I’m looking at and with a little back and forth we get the perfect present.”
“We deliver locally or send directly to loved ones. And as I enjoy gift-wrapping so much, I am more than happy to be given that task as well as popping in a handwritten note,” adds Jacqueline.
Jacqueline will choose items from the well-designed and beautiful ones that fill their two-storey shop in Wainwright’s Yard.
They champion British made from John Sankey and Emma Bridgewater to Neom organics, St Eval Candles and Amanda Coleman Jewellery. As well as items that are made to last. Local makers include Becca Hall illustration, The Little Lakeland Soap Company and Sedbergh Soap.
Jacqueline says that whilst the pandemic has changed customer habits, customer service remains as important as ever.
From cool kitchenware to furniture and soft furnishings; from jewellery to soaps and scented candles – why not grab a brew and let someone with a trained eye and lots of experience help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
It’s a rewarding and stress-free way to shop.
