New to Newbury

With eight new businesses in town this Spring, there’s all the more reason to re-visit Newbury…

As we prepare to return to ‘normal’ life, you might find yourself having that extra shower one week, and doing your hair a little more often the next. For others, however, they’ve taken things one step further by starting up a new business (okay, several steps further).

With as many as eight new businesses setting up shop in Newbury; new cafés, salon and shop owners, and fitness start-ups have been working tirelessly to open up for business.

So, pack your sun glasses and head into town. Below is a list of all the businesses new to Newbury for when you revisit from 12th April…
The first of its kind in Newbury town centre, a bridal boutique is just what our historic market town needs! The Bridal Dress Company is settling into its beautiful home in one of the period buildings on Mansion House Street, making this the perfect location for a little luxury. This exclusive boutique is ran by sister duo Harriet and Charlotte, who have spent endless hours researching which gorgeous designer brands to stock in-store. We predict this one will have brides to-be travelling from far and wide to visit, so be sure to check it out and book an appointment if you’ve got your big day coming up!
