Blue has been established for over 16 years, and is a small department store based in a three storey period building in Market Place, in the old market town of Shifnal in Shropshire.
On entry you will find the award winning floristry section filled with fragrant bouquets, this leads to the gift department and then on to the Ladies Boutique ‘The Thread”. Upstairs leads to a small gallery selling original art work, gifts and fashion and a tiny tearoom.
Jan Park, the owner and creator of Blue, had a clear vision of what she wanted to create for this retail experience. Following a career in Art and Design, Jan wanted to create a memorable shopping experience, offering customers ethically and well designed products in a welcoming environment, with excellent and friendly customer service.
Following her career as an Artist/Designer and University Lecturer in Art School, Jan created a comfortable, stylish store at Blue.
Jan travels extensively to source well designed products for all of the departments at Blue, buying from small artists and designers, British manufacturers and Fair Trade suppliers as much as possible.
