Gift and interiors shop closes


A Wilmslow store selling women's clothing, accessories and home interiors has closed after trading in the town centre for two and a half years.

The Hidden Jem opened in the premises previously occupied by Simon Dunn chocolatiers on Alderley Road in August 2014.

The family run business was founded by Julie and Dan Moores, who were originally from Manchester but then moved to the coast at Lytham where they opened their first shop over 10 years ago.

I may be Wilmslow born and bred but I draw the line at paying silly prices for goods that I can buy cheaper elsewhere. I have never understood people who pay inflated prices for goods because they can, I would rather save money & donate it to a deserving charity!

I always found it to be very good value indeed. Do you not realise that these small independent's are being crippled by massive business rates from Cheshire East and because of footfall in Wilmslow diminishing need to sometimes charge a little extra. Parking in Wilmslow is a nightmare at the best of times.
I feel really sorry for the Business above and it is a sad loss for Wilmslow town centre that is distinctly lacking this type of shop. Maybe they can open another coffee shop !!!!

I liked this shop, they tried to offer interesting, different and quality items, which is where the price differential comes in (quite apart from rent and rates on a largish site). We are in danger of being left with bland national chains. I admire people who are prepared to take a risk.
