Calliope Gifts to open third retail shop

Calliope Gifts, the gift shop brand founded by former Borders bookshops c.e.o. Philip Downer and head of buying Andy Adamson, has announced the opening of a third retail shop, in the Orchards Shopping Centre at Haywards Heath.

The 1,120 sq ft shop will open on October 10th 2015, and will feature Calliope’s "signature" selection of gifts, homewares, fashion accessories, greetings cards, stationery, toys and books. According to Calliope, as one of the “exciting” independent retailers “revitalising” the UK’s high streets, their mission is to provide “a gift for everybody”.

Calliope Gifts opened its first shop in Surrey in February 2013, and its second in Alton, Hampshire in June 2014.

Calliope won a 2014 Best Newcomer award at "The Greats", which recognises gift shops throughout the UK and has been nominated twice at “The Retas”, the national awards for greetings card retailers.
