We are over the moon to have become a Small Business Sunday Winner on the same weekend we celebrated 20 years of being shopkeepers of Jeremy's Home Store.
After such a fantastic day of celebrations Saturday followed by a whirlwind of tweets on Sunday we are excited about the future of our Tunbridge Wells and online store.
We are a husband and wife team who opened a small shop of 500 sq/ft back in March 1996 selling essential everyday items at the best possible price.
Today, 20 years later, we are trading from the same shop but have increased the size to 2100 sq/ft by extending and moving sideways.
We now stock over 3000 lines and cover not only housewares, but gifts, toys, sweets, and home accessories. We still keep to our original aim of stocking a wide range of essential, practical and fun products at affordable prices.
We now class ourselves as Purveyors of Fancy Goods!
Work hard and enjoy what you do, otherwise its not worth doing!
It's never going it be easy but running your own business but it can be very rewarding.
We have grown with our shop as it has, we started it when we very young and inexperienced. We found this had its obstacles, as sometimes not everyone took us seriously. But perseverance pays off in the end.
