Devizes MP Claire Perry opened the new headquarters of PinkBox Boutique at Meadow Barn, Manor Farm, Coate, near Devizes on Friday April 22.
She told guests a facility like Meadow Barn was an innovative way to bring small business owners together with their local Wiltshire community.
PinkBox founder Kerry Gover has worked alongside the owners of Manor Farm – Steve and Fiona Whiston, to convert Meadow Barn into a space where business owners and local people can meet and browse.
Kerry said: “It’s been a journey to get here with a lot of hard work from all of us to get Meadow Barn ready for the opening. We’re very grateful to Claire Perry for coming along to support us.”
Meadow Barn is the new home of Kerry’s online gift shop PinkBox Boutique which sells many skincare and food products from Wiltshire suppliers and producers. Kerry sources goods which are natural and ethical from jewellery and scarves through to artisan foods.
A crowd of local supporters and business owners gathered for the opening and were given a tour of the facility which includes a retail space, comfortable seating area, coffee bar, private meeting room and therapy room.
Although PinkBox was created more than two years ago, Kerry always had a wider vision to create a relaxed and accessible space where local people, sole traders and micro businesses could meet, by appointment, and reduce isolation in a semi-rural environment.
