We’d like to share our story with you. It’s a true story about the Baby, the Big Business and the Stork in the City.
Once upon a time in 2013 cities across the UK flourished. Business was booming, but so were the babies. 870,000 women left their workplace to embark on maternity leave. Business was booming, but so were the babies.
Why then as a time challenged professional did I find it so hard to organise a new baby, maternity or shower event for the new and expectant mums and dads I worked with? Why then was it so difficult to crowdfund a gift, to find and personalised and unique present without trawling 10 different high street stores? Why did no one offer practical gifts that were also pretty? Well it’s because workplace gifting was overlooked.
In 2013 I launched Stork in the City from my garage. I sat in there for hours sewing dolls and making baby bouquets while managing a full-time career, a 10!year old son and looking after my terminally ill mum. I thrived on the delight my mini enterprise brought to new mums and dads.
In 2020 I left a 25 year successful career in policing to CHANGE THE PRESENT. With previous experience in the retail sector, customer service, procurement and being a working mum I knew I was ready and equipped to launch our Stork in the City Boutique and our online store. Our story continues and we’re excited about growing our business and relationships with you.
