Meet the Team

We have many departments selling assorted merchandise so I am always kept busy, one minute you could be in the menswear department, the next you are needed in the giftware or furnishings.

Whether its serving customers, ordering merchandise, pricing and putting on display merchandise that has just come into store, changing shop displays or department layout there’s always something that needs to be done so the day’s work flies by.


I have worked within the retail sector for over thirty years, and I had the pleasure of starting with Blackwell’s Department Store very recently. Even in that short amount of time,  I have really enjoyed the atmosphere, and being made to feel welcome by the Blackwell’s team and customers.

Having enjoyed shopping there many times previously as a customer myself, I have always been impressed with the variety and quality of products in-store.


I have worked here for 3 1/2 years where my expertise lies in wool, sewing and all things crafty. I have worked previously in a Craft Retail store and was a craft Tutor so running the Wool and Haberdashery area is where I feel most comfortable.

A big part of my day is interacting with customers to help them find what they require, answering queries, guiding and offering solutions to customers.


I am a 6th generation Blackwell and have been working at the store for almost two years now after taking a break from my studies in 2019.

What I love most about the store is the friendly customers and staff; there is always a good mood in the store and plenty of opportunities to catch up with the local customers.



I’ve been working for Blackwell’s for six years part time and still loving it -I enjoy being part of the Blackwell’s team. I’ve always enjoyed serving customers, doing displays and product ordering.

I have memories of shopping here as a child with my mother and it’s amazing to see how the store has changed over the years. I love that we are still changing with new brands and products, it’s fabulous we are celebrating 150 years and that my own children will have memories of Blackwell’s too.
