Opened in an old pub and named after the owners’ dogs, quirky contemporary women’s indie Woodie & Morris’ focus on well-priced casualwear has been a hit in Haslemere since the store opened three-and-a-half years ago.
Last year, owners Melanie and Clive Rollinson changed their buying strategy towards short-order brands and widened the business’ scope when they launched an online store in May, and opened a second store in Cranleigh in Surrey in July.
Melanie Rollinson says she is cautiously optimistic for 2013, expecting conservative like-for-like growth, but hopes to see strong sales from both the new Cranleigh store and the online platform.
