Today I was invited along to have a sneak peek at the brand new Natural Baby Shower store opening in Bagshot, Surrey. I’ve always loved the website so I was delighted to have been asked along to check out their new flagship store.
It was lovely to meet the owners, Victoria and Clifton, who were so passionate about their business and the customer experience they wanted to give each person who walked through the door. It was great learning from founder Victoria how Natural Baby Shower was first set up, 7 years ago, when their first son was born and that their initial reasons and values remained the same; bringing parents helpful advice and a breadth of natural & ethical products at affordable prices.
The first thing which struck me when I walked in was the size of the store! I took George along in the carrier as I didn’t think there would be room for the pram but how wrong I was! Brimming with all the essentials & premium brands I was in mummy heaven browsing through all the beautiful products.
The shop boasts a vast Merino collection made from the finest of materials and brands such as colourful Frugi and a huge range of Aden & Anais – a favourite in our house!
I was really impressed with their collection of luxury change bags from the likes of Pacapod and Storksak which, coming from someone who spent months researching which bag to go with myself, is so useful having them all on display to look through individually and compare against each other.
Upstairs more fantastic brands were on display, from Snuzpod to Babymoov with a Boori dedicated room showcasing their beautiful nursery furniture. All dressed with fantastic accessories from brands such as Merino Kids and Leander.
The friendly and knowledgable staff talked me through everything I might need to know and welcomed me into the personal shopper, baby concierge-esque room where new parents can be guided through the huge amount of products on offer to them, to help filter through exactly what they may need to begin their new journey.
As a mother of not only a newborn, but also a very active 2 year old I know all too well how hard it is to shop with both. So I was really pleased to see that plans were being made to include a toddler friendly corner of the shop to entertain them (and a sofa & coffee for Daddy!) to give you the freedom to peruse at leisure with a fantastic array of Le Toy Van toys to play with.
The store truly is a one stop shop for parents, offering a huge range of premium and affordable products, all backed up by amazing customer service and an obvious knowledge of what parents need. If you’re local to Surrey make sure you pop in and have a look, you won’t be disappointed!
Open to the public on 1st June 2015 in Bagshot, Surrey.
