VALENTINER was established in 2012 by husband and wife team Paul Collis and Kirsten Valentiner. Having lived in Marlborough for some years they had long felt there was a gap in the local market for a colourful “European Style ” home, beauty and gift Shop. Marlborough is a true market town and reputed to have the widest high street in the UK. It was a natural choice for VALENTINER as it provides a shopping oasis for their unique proposition. The premises VALENTINER chose is in the perfect location, on the sunny side of Marlborough's high street in a quirky and rambling 5 storey listed building known as Cromwell House that was built in the 18th century.
VALENTINER offers a curated collection of internationally renowned brands offering products for home, beauty, fashion accessories, novelty, gifts and cookwares along with the most unique collection of “must have” greetings cards. VALENTINER sell over 20,000 greeting cards a year from a relatively small amount of floor space! Since January 2015 VALENTINER have operated the only cook shop in Marlborough. It is on the upper floor and they frequently hear customers saying “Oh what a lovely cook shop!”
"The system provides all the functionality that the "Big Guys" have at an affordable price. WE ARE VERY HAPPY CUSTOMERS".
Why they would recommend Intelligent Retail
