Independents party with Cherry Orchard in glorious weather


GLORIOUS sunshine greeted Cherry Orchard’s Independents’ Day celebrations with retailers enjoying the party at their Kent design studio.

Part of the annual campaign to support all the fabulous independent retailers across the country, Cherry Orchard MD Jackie Collins organised the event on Thursday, July 4, for stockists to see how their products are designed.
And the lovely setting of their studio in the countryside near Canterbury was enhanced by the beautiful weather with visitors travelling quite some distance to enjoy the party and give their feedback on Cherry Orchard’s products and plans.
Welcoming her guests, Jackie said: “I’m very lucky because I surround myself with good people, that’s my USP. And we’ve been with some a long time – my director of creativity Bev Fisher has been with me for 18 years and we’re like an old married couple but we don’t argue!
“We couldn’t have ordered better weather. Many thanks to Charlotte for organising this – people have come from all over, even down from Sheffield, as well as staff from Scotland for our sales conference.”
The event was part of the non-for-profit Independents’ Day UK campaign that supports and promotes indie retail businesses all year round.
