To celebrate the opening of our beautiful new Windsor store, we caught up with manager Matthew Perry to find out what makes this historic town extra special.
What is your favourite thing about Windsor?
Windsor is such a lovely place, one which I am very excited to now live and work in. It is such a well-known part of the UK and absolutely beautiful to walk around. I obviously can’t help but mention the castle, which is stunning (and which I’m lucky enough to have views of from my new house).
What do you think makes Windsor different from other cities?
There is nowhere quite like Windsor – having the royals here creates such a special feel. All of the history behind Windsor is fascinating and just part of the reason so many visitors come here. Even with all of this, Windsor still holds a small town, homely feel.
What are you most excited to do in Windsor?
I am looking forward to seeing some of the wonderful sights. Top of the list will be a tour of Windsor Castle – it’s the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world. The Long Walk will be lovely to stroll along on a dry Autumn day in the coming weeks. There’s also the French Brothers’ Riverboat tours, where you can see the town and the lovely surrounding countryside from the water.
What is so great about the location of The White Company in Windsor?
Well it is definitely about time The White Company opened a store here! The location is ideal. It’s close to the high street, as well as the train station, so I’m sure there will be lots of footfall going by, especially when people hear we have opened.
What are your favourite pieces from The White Company?
I love our natural duvets and pillows – I have used these for the last few years and miss them a lot when not staying in my own bed. I’m also a huge fan of our Wild Rhubarb and Orange Rind scents, which I use around the house. And, of course, you can’t miss out the Autumn fragrance collection at this time of year.
Which products are you most excited about from the Christmas collection?
I am rather obsessed with Christmas, so I’m very excited to be opening the store in time for the festive season. I can’t wait to see customers getting into the Christmas spirit and purchasing our beautiful trees and decorations – my favourites are the White Feather Bauble and Felt Pear for their lovely textures. There is nowhere else out there quite like The White Company for Christmas shopping. The team and I are ready to be on hand to help all customers (new and existing) with their purchases.
