A Note from Joe Chandler, Founder of Chickidee
In 2010 our fledgling business was given the opportunity to move into the empty unit vacated by Past Times shortly after they collapsed during the 08/09 financial crisis.
It was a huge leap of faith for us as this would be our first ever ‘’proper’’ store!
We painted over the old burgundy colours of the Past Times walls and set about creating a new, epic Interiors experience and thanks to the success of this store we were able to open another five shops!
I collected the keys and painted the walls in the shop all those years ago, so it will be with a teary eye when I give the keys back to the management and security who have so brilliantly looked after us during our time in the Peacocks Centre.
It’s been a fantastic journey from humble beginnings and we couldn’t be prouder of what we have achieved with our customers.
Our Woking store has been a credit to our staff, both past and present, to whom I am extremely grateful. It has been beautiful to meet and serve the great people of Woking and although we won’t see each other in town as much as we are used to, we would love to look after you online!
What kind of a gift shop would we be if we didn’t give you a leaving gift?
