Set back off one of Chaddesden’s main roads, nestled amongst the houses, is the wonderfully quaint Chaddesden Post Office.
What’s exciting about a Post Office I hear you say!
Well, this is not the average run of the mill post office. Although it’s recent expansion allows for a wide range of services, this place also offers something special. Combined with floral Creations next door, lies a hidden treasure chest, an Aladdin’s Cave and a Narnia of wonderous gifts.
Whatever the occasion, there’s something there for everyone. Bespoke personalised frames for that extra special picture, Swarovski decorated crystal glasses for a touching toast and gorgeous jewellery to compliment any outfit.
January 2016 marked the start of the journey when the owners, along with their young son, left behind their computer screens and jobs in IT and travelled from Royal Leamington Spa to Derby. Wanting a new chapter, something they could call their own, the search began.
Already a key part of the community, the Post Office had potential to become something much more to its already dedicated and supportive local community. With an amazing team, the new owners worked tirelessly to source new suppliers and gift lines to compliment the beautiful flowers they create.
Keeping locality at the very heart of the venture, firm favourites of fresh ham and fresh eggs keep the residents content as they enjoy quality, without having to travel miles to a farm shop or to a busy and crowded supermarket.
As the business continues to grow, in both services and reputation, there is a clear sense of pride of what’s been achieved so far. The wonderful staff and loyal customers really do show their support.
As the festive season draws upon us, children from a local school will be singing carols on Monday 4th and 11th December, from 1.30-3.30pm. Santa will be there too! The shop will also be open until 8pm for late night shopping.
The Post Office has come such a long way in the last two years and it’s not the only thing that’s grown as they’ve welcomed a new member to the family. We’re certainly looking forward to seeing what 2018 has to offer.
If you’ve not paid this place a visit yet, we highly recommend you do. We’re sure you will love it as much as we do.
