Independent home boutique Dear Grace to Open in Red Lion Yard

We are very excited to announce that a new, independent boutique, Dear Grace, will open in Red Lion Yard this weekend. The store, run by Victoria and David Johnson will offer a handpicked collection of inspired home furnishings and gifts including glassware, soft furnishings, furniture and dining ware.

The shop is located in Unit 8/9 Red Lion Square and will be officially opened on Saturday 23rd June by the Mayor of Colchester. Why not come along to the opening as there will be celebratory drinks and nibbles served throughout the day with gifts and giveaways as well as free sampling of Dear Grace’s fabulous homemade fudge and Belgian chocolates.

Dear Grace is the culmination of 30 years’ experience in the retail industry for Victoria who took inspiration from her childhood growing up in the Essex countryside and combined it with her love of French country styles culminating in Dear Grace’s unique offering. The product range blends soft, natural fabrics and neutral colours to give a chic, artisan feel.

David Johnson says “We are thrilled to be opening in such a fabulous setting. My wife has a long family history in Colchester and is excited to be returning to her home town. We feel we have so much to offer our customers and can’t wait to share our individual style with them.”

Our Centre Manager, Peter Scopes said: “It’s terrific to see another independent boutique opening in Red Lion Yard. Dear Grace will benefit from the unique, vibrant atmosphere of Lion Walk and offer customers yet more choice with their wonderful range of handpicked, chic home products.”

Dear Grace will join several other interior boutiques in Red Lion Yard including Maison White and Abode Collections making it a must-visit destination for anyone looking for home styling solutions.
