The gorgeous Woodbridge Emporium has had two national shoutouts this week – from The Telegraph newspaper and Good Housekeeping Magazine.
With the country living under lockdown restrictions, Good Housekeeping were keen to support small bookshops sellers facing the huge challenge of operating during the coronavirus pandemic.
They said: “From Edinburgh to Brighton, there are small, independently-run bookshops around the country taking online orders and organising home deliveries and safe collection, meaning you can stock up on new reads while supporting businesses that could really do with some help.”
The Emporium, run by the lovely Jules Button, was praised for adapting to the current climate and taking online orders ans well as offering free postage on orders over £30.
Earlier this week, the bookshop was also named in the Telegraph at number 42 in the Top 50 British Brands that went above and beyond during lockdown.
The journalist noted: “This Suffolk store sells books, loose-leaf tea and other lovely things. It’s a new business, so can’t get Government support, yet owner Jules Button has been sending free books to frontline staff and elderly people isolating alone. You can help her by adding a book donation to your online order.”
Well done Jules!
