By Crediton Courier Newspaper in Local People

TOWN & Countrywear by Mole Avon has celebrated 25 years on Crediton High Street.

To mark the occasion, the shop at 136 High Street, welcomed past and present staff as well as the Mayor of Crediton, Frank Letch, to celebrate with cake and a glass of bubbly.

The shop has seen some changes over the years since it opened its doors on Friday, January 24, 1992 when it took over the former SWEB premises.

Indeed the opening was reported in the Crediton Courier!

Following a major refit last summer the new-look shop now offers fashion and country clothing and footwear for ladies and men from big brand names like Joules, Lazy Jacks, Weird Fish, Jack Murphy, Wrangler, Craghopper, Hunter, Rieker and Hi-Tec.

More great brands will be arriving this spring including Barbour!

The shop also offers schoolwear for local primary schools and QE as well as dry cleaning, a laundry and ironing service and shoe repairs.

“We are proud to have been trading in the High Street in Crediton for 25 years; it is a real achievement," says Alan Howland.

"It certainly was not the plan when we opened the shop!”, Mole Avon marketing manager who was there at the opening 25 years ago.

“The shop has changed over the years, and we are delighted that we now offer a range of clothing and footwear for both men and ladies.

"We are introducing new brands again this spring as we try to continue to offer something fresh and new for our high street.”

To further celebrate this special occasion Town & Countrywear will be offering customers £5 off when they spend £25 or more in store from Saturday, February 4 to Saturday, February 11.

This fantastic deal is available on top of existing offers, so for a great deal head over to the shop this coming week.

The shop is open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm and shop supervisor Daphne Pottle and her team look forward to welcoming you.
