We are a small family owned Independant gift retailer in Nottinghamshire with 3 stores, the first of which (West Bridgford) opened in August 1993. In addition, since 1995 we have also offered our products by mail, and we have had an online presence since 1996, during the early stages of the internet.
Still run by family members today, Connaught House and connaughtonline.co.uk employs 20+ local people and supports local charities and events in our communities.
Our emphasis has always been on quality, the products we offer in our shops and online are carefully chosen and we travel far and wide to find new, interesting gifts. Many are hard to find, and we work constantly with our suppliers to bring our customers superb quality and 'value for money'. We constantly improve our ranges and have around 7000 different items in stock in our shops at any one time.
As a former Glass & China specialist, we have had to move with the times, and our customer needs. We now stock a wide range of gift products, handbags, candles, jewellery and cookware, as well as Thornton's confectionery franchises in West Bridgford and Arnold. We like to think that we offer a mixture of quality products that you want to buy for yourself, a close friend or a family member - we don't sell anything that we wouldn't use ourselves!
We pack all our products ourselves, and take great care with every parcel that leaves us, we pride ourselves on our customer service and are here to help if you need it.
