Pigeonhole in Daventry opened for business again on Saturday after moving premises in just eight short weeks.

The boutique emporium faced closure in March after high rent levels in the previous premises, Daventry’s Moot Hall, meant they could no longer afford to house their 60 small businesses.

Following coverage in the Gusher a private landlord approached owners Paul Bowditch and Dawn Willetts about moving to Bishops Crewe House (formally the Daventry Town Council office), opposite Daventry’s library.

Mr Bowditch said: “We were one week away from looking at a property outside of Daventry when we were contacted. It was very lucky and it all fell into place.

“The new building has character and it suits the type of business we have. It’s perfect and looking back now we wish we had started in this building.”

The pair have had a busy few weeks freshening up the building and moving cabinets, crafts and jewellery over.

Mr Bowditch added:“I think people will look forward to having a look around the new building. It has ornate windows and is of an age and is all on the ground floor.”
