Roobarb is both an online store and a lifestyle, ladies clothing and gift shop in Bridgnorth. You can buy from the website or in person, at our bricks-and-mortar shop. Or both!
We’re not the first lifestyle and gift shop in Bridgnorth, but there wasn’t another one doing quite what we had planned; our tasteful mix of lifestyle items & gifts.
We researched many towns less than an hour from our home, which would ‘fit’ with our lifestyle & gift offer. Bridgnorth came top of the list.
Bridgnorth is a busy market town in Shropshire, with lots of history. With its close proximity to Birmingham and Wolverhampton it made it an ideal choice to open a store.
There is free park and ride on most Saturday's throughout the summer organised by the Bridgnorth Chamber of Commerce which brings many people to the town.
In 2016 the town won the Great British High Street Award for Large Market Town, which is an amazing award to win. But we weren't surprised, it's a great place with great people.
It was organised by two local ladies, Sally Themans and Sarah Stevens, who pulled the whole town together to get behind the bid. Both women are totally passionate about the town and they run separate websites and social media platforms to promote it. http://lovebridgnorth.co.uk https://www.facebook.com/Buybiginbridgnorth/
In 2017 Roobarb won its own award, the British Independent Retailers Association (Bira) Independent Retail Team of the Year 2017, which we were overjoyed with first being shortlisted and then to win, it was truly amazing.
