New store brings spirit of Sheffield independents to Meadowhall

A new store which brings together 13 independent retailers from across Sheffield opened its doors in Meadowhall shopping centre on Saturday 9 May.

The Independent Sheffield Shop follows the success of the centre’s Independent Yorkshire Shop, home to independents across the region, and offers a wide range of products from candles to coffee, beer to blankets and even locally inspired books.

Darren Pearce, centre director at Meadowhall, said: “Supporting the local community is so important to us and we know many of our visitors echo that sentiment. These really are some of the most exciting independent retailers in Sheffield and, with such an eclectic mix, the store has a great atmosphere and plenty to offer.

“We’ve been supporting local independent retailers for a number of years, first with The Lanes, which has 20 independent retailers, and next with our Independent Yorkshire Shop. One of the retailers from that store, Coley Coco Candles, was so popular that they will soon have their own unit in The Lanes. I’m sure our latest arrivals will go down just as well with our customers.”
