Pixie Childrenswear Boutique in Hale is celebrating its 10th birthday this week.

It’s been a whole decade since Gillian Franks first opened Pixie Childrenswear in 2010.

She said: “I can’t believe my daughter Amelia was just 18 months old when she helped me cut the ribbon at the start of this amazing journey, and now she’s nearly 12 years old and has just started secondary school!”

Pixie focuses on high-quality great value kids’ clothing and accessories for babies, children and young teens up to 14-years. Pixie also sources stimulating and educational toys, accessories and gifts.

Over the decade, Pixie has been a finalist for Kidswear Independent of the Year at the prestigious Drapers Independents Awards, has supplied clothes for numerous OK! magazine shoots, and won a Childrenswear Buyer magazine award for Best Kids Store.

Gillian continued: “I would like to thank everyone who has supported us and made it all possible, including our lovely brands and truly amazing customers.”

There is no doubt that this is a challenging time for small businesses and this continued loyalty has meant so much to this family-run business, and the Pixie family continues to grow; Gillian recently introduced a new brand, Petit Sofie Schnoor, to the Hale shop with its chic and playful styles from baby up to 14 years.

Pixie is marking its birthday with a competition to win its signature Melissa & Doug Plush Giraffe, worth £99. You can enter via their Facebook or Instagram pages.
