New shop at White River Place


A St Austell couple has launched a new gift store at White River Place Shopping Centre in the heart of St Austell.

The Kernow Gifts Store will stock everything from greeting cards to gifts and souvenirs and focus heavily on the wedding market.

The store, facing Aylmer Square in the centre of town, will be run by Bonnie Swiggs and her partner Daniel Davis, who already run the Cornish Candy Company shop, also based in White River Place.

Davis said: “We have wanted a second store for some time now as the Cornish Candy Shop just isn’t big enough for us, so we are delighted to be expanding into this new venture just over the road.”

Kernow Gifts Store will offer high end greetings cards, gifts, and accessories, as well as wedding equipment to hire.

White River Place manager, Richard Hurst, added: “Daniel and Bonnie are extremely passionate about their business and we are delighted they have decided to open a new store here at White River Place to sell even more great products.

“We always try to support independent businesses where possible, so it is great to be adding another local store to the selection of popular high street stores we have here in St Austell already.”
