Southport is smelling more success with a brand new shop opening in Southport town centre in time for the Christmas shopping season.
Wolfe & Bear, the newest independent business in Southport, has opened on Wesley Street.
The family run business, which sells premium candles, wax melts and reed diffusers for your home launched its own website at the beginning of 2021, proving to be a big success with customers.
Now owner Faye Sears has chosen Southport to invested in opening her very first bricks and mortar store.
Faye named the brand after the names of her two young boys Wolfe and Bear – who if you visit the shop on Wesley Street often make an appearance!
It stocks hand-crafted candles, wax melts and home fragrances, along with products from other UK-based independent businesses.
Faye is looking forward to being part of the Wesley Street community – known as ‘The Village In The Town’ because of its collection of top quality independent shops and cafes.
She said: “I chose Wesley Street because of its unique shopping experience and close-knit community of small independent business owners.
“The shop on Wesley Street was the first I viewed and I instantly knew that my business would fit in well with the vibe of the street.
“I did view other properties afterwards but nothing gave me the same feeling and excitement as Wesley Street.
“All of the other businesses are super friendly and I’m so proud and grateful to be part of the crew.”
Faye explained more about the products that customers can expect.
She said: “For us, a candle or home fragrance isn’t just an accessory that we occasionally roll out to brighten a room. It’s an important part of making a house into a home. It’s the first thing people notice when they walk through your door and their first impression of what your house says about you. It tells the world a little about who you are, your values and how you live your life.
“Here at Wolfe & Bear our dream was to create something that brought joy to homes, be they cottages or castles, in the heart of a bustling city, the rugged coast or the rolling countryside.
“We wanted to create something more than another cheap candle, mass produced with no love, effort or thought. We wanted something better than we could find. So we decided to create it ourselves.
“We have spent three years learning our craft before putting anything out to market. We learned how to hand craft our products so that they were the absolute best that they could be.
“We use the highest quality soy wax and fragrance oils and we have worked tirelessly to improve our products ensuring they were the best we’d ever come across.
“Our entire mission was and still is, focused on crafting the best premium candles and fragrance products that the world has ever seen.”
“Our current open hours are Tuesday to Saturday 10am-4pm, but we also local delivery options and collect from store when you purchase from our website www.wolfeandbear.co.uk
Faye says the business has fun on its social media channels and loves to engage with customers.
