Devon-based retailer Daisy Park is celebrating its tenth year of business this month, since it began back in 2007.

The award winning independent lifestyle retailer, who specialise in selling a range of homeware, gifts and decorative items, originally began as a market stall in their local town of South Molton.

The business moved to their existing larger premises in 2012, from where they also operate the online part of their business. The company is now one of the leading online lifestyle retailers, shipping orders both across the UK and across the world.

The thriving shop was set up by Emma Paisey and her husband David Matthewman. Emma relocated from a creative corporate role in Shropshire working as a product design manager for an international greeting card company, deciding she wanted to work for herself - swapping an office based role for the countryside and a more independent career.

Daisy Park now employ three staff and take pride in providing a high level of customer service, ensuring every transaction has a personal touch both online and in-store.

Emma Paisey, joint business owner said: “We are enormously proud of what we have achieved over the past ten years, going from a tiny market stall, to a thriving business and employer.

“Our ethos has remained the same - to provide each customer with a personalised shopping experience, offering exceptional customer service. And we must be doing something right as we have established a loyal fan base across the local area and the world. In fact, two of our regular customers - one in Portugal and one in the USA - are such big fans that they have made special journeys to visit our store.

“When we moved to Devon from Shropshire in 2006, I wanted a much quieter life, and to be more in control of my destiny. I’m not sure that life is any quieter, and I know that having my own business brings different challenges, but I’m so happy I made the decision to start Daisy Park!

“We have some special plans lined up in-store and online to celebrate our big birthday. Look out for competitions, discounts, and much more.

“We’d like to thank all our customers for the support they’ve given us over the past ten years, and we look forward to the next decade!”
