Whitstable Actors to celebrate Whitstable Produce Store’s Sixth Birthday
December 7, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pmFree
Whitstable Produce Store celebrates its sixth birthday on Saturday 7 December and we are thrilled that Whitstable actors and Store ‘regulars’ Tanya Franks and James Barriscale will be cutting our birthday cake at 11am at the Store.
Every year, the Store commissions a birthday cake and Christmas decorations from local businesses. This year, the Whitstable Cake Company is creating the cake and the decorations are by The General Maker (Oy Wah Chung) who has designed and installed them for the last five years.
Owner Steve Jones says: ‘We look forward to our birthday every year, and with Tanya and James cutting the cake, this year will be ‘super special’. But every day is important, and we thank our customers, staff and suppliers for supporting us throughout the year. We can only do what we do because they do what they do. And I must give a special mention to Canterbury City Council’s Shop by the Sea campaign – we’re definitely seeing the benefits of their input.’
Whitstable Produce Store opened on Small Business Saturday in December 2013. We sell food and drink from Kent producers and suppliers to eat in and take away. For Christmas, we invite customers to create their own ‘bespoke’ hampers, choosing their festive treats so we can make them into gorgeous foodie gifts.
This year we won Retail Business of the Year from Independent Business Awards Kent (IBAK) and we were recently runner-up in the Kent Life Food and Drink Awards (Food and Drink Retailer). Previously we have been honoured to receive awards including Small Business Saturday’s Small Business 100, runner-up in the Observer Food Monthly Awards and in the Top 10 for the Great British High Street Best GB Twitter Shop .
