Meet Lisa Wells, The Wardobe on 12 South Street, Dorking Surrey RH4 2HQ

I have always wanted my own clothes shop for as long as I can remember. A childhood dream that is now a reality. I still have that pinch me moment when I open the door to my shop in the morning. Clothes are my passion whether they be new or pre-loved and so being able to offer people both of these options in the shop is amazing. I want to offer my customers great looking clothes, shoes and accessories at an affordable price point. My main aim is for the people who come in to The Wardrobe to walk out with a smile on their face, happy with their purchase and excited to wear it - or delighted that they've found the perfect present for someone. We are also going to be selling Brocante from our basement in the near future.

What do you love about Dorking?

I only moved to Dorking about a year ago and love living here. I think it has got a great high street and it's nice to see new businesses opening up. Everyone has been so lovely and friendly and very encouraging since I opened a month ago. I am already beginning to feel part of the community which is so nice.

Tell us what sustainability means to you

Sustainability is important to me that's why I have a pre-loved section in the shop where customers can purchase good quality pre-owned clothing. I have also recently introduced some beautiful scarves that have been made using recycled plastic bottles. I have paper bags to offer customers and am always open to learn more about sustainability.

Any advice for new businesses?

Know your target market and who you want your customers to be. Get to know the other local businesses, pop in and introduce yourself. Being nice and friendly goes a long way!
