An interior design shop which has been located on London Road for over twenty years is closing this week.
Amanda Kennington, owner of The Edge Interiors, is continuing to run her business but has decided that she no longer needs a shop on the highstreet and it is time to try some new things.
Going forward, The Edge Interiors will be based from a studio in her back garden in Gawsworth.
Amanda explained "I don't want to work Saturdays anymore or five days a week. I want to take a bit of a step back. I have got many clients after 20 years here and 5 years elsewhere so I am able to do it."
In addition to offering her interior design service, Amanda intends to launch a series of creative workshops at her studio in the Autumn next year, covering areas such as floristry, photography, collage making, water colours and children's classes.
Amanda added "I am very sad to leave Alderley Edge but the village is changing and the independents seem to have disappeared.
"I will have a nice big studio in Gawsworth with plenty of parking which is a big issue in the village."
The Edge Interiors is currently holding a closing down sale and will shut up shop on Friday October 3rd. The lease for 3A London Rd has been taken by a bridal shop which is hoping to open in October.
The Edge Interiors' new address is The Studio, Big Moss Farm, Lowes Lane,
Gawsworth, SK11 9QR. Tel: 01625 584999.
