When the Macclesfield Express asked Heather Bamber, owner of No Place Like Home in Macclesfield, who she would most like to visit her shop she replied David Rutley. It was an invitation the Macclesfield MP could not refuse.
David visited the shop on Mill Street to find out more about more about the business and received a very warm welcome. Heather opened the shop two years ago, following a successful career in nursing. No Place Like Home focuses on handmade crafts, working with over forty local arts and crafts suppliers. The shop provides artists with a platform for market research to help them develop their business. Heather also offers a personalised service, with the option of bespoke orders, some of which have been featured on “Come Dine With Me”.
No Place Like Home is currently supporting local author Sarah McNaught. David was presented with a copy of Sarah’s book “Fandanzel”, about Fandanzel, a fox who lives in Macclesfield Forest.
Following the visit David said, “I was pleased to accept Heather’s kind invitation and find out more about her business. Independent shops like No Place Like Home bring something different to our high street. It is a great example of the independent retail spirit in Macclesfield.”
