About us

Hi! I'm Jo, and it's a pleasure to have you visit our website.

Firstly a little about me...I've worked in the home furnishings trade now for almost twenty years, but decided to open Number 8 Shrewsbury in 2015 alongside my fiance and business partner James.  In this time we have moved house, adopted a wee flock of sheep, a handful of chickens, a Welsh Springer to keep our beloved Labrador on his toes and I have become a Granny!  When I write this all down, it sounds incredible that all this has happened during our time of running our beautiful shop....but lets not mention COVID or Brexit or indeed the additional grey hairs and wrinkles that have developed either....ahem!

What I can also add, is how much our little shop has changed too!  Having started out focusing just on beds, mattresses and furniture, I can assure you that even more has changed regarding the shop, and continues to do so!  Whilst we still supply these lines, we have now introduced occasional furniture including armchairs, sofas, pouffes and tables as well as the most glorious lighting, and sumptuous bedding and accessories for your home.  The pleasure of being a truly independant retailer is having the freedom and choice to add/change what we choose to have in store, so we often change things around to keep us on our toes and to keep it refreshed for the most important influence on our business....the customers!

Whilst most of our ranges will appear on our website, there is a lot that we have kept solely in store for customers to peruse in person, so if you are not local to our lovely town and you are planning a trip away anytime, do consider coming to is a lovely little town with lots of character as well as characters!

I do hope you enjoy perusing our website...feel free to follow us on Facebook and on Instagram where we post lots of new stocks as well as promotions...we all love a good deal!

If you do have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to call us on 01743 588838 or email us at  

Happy Shopping
