Bank Holiday Weekend

Bank Holiday Weekend


We had a great weekend launching our new book, The Boswells Connection.

Six out of the seven authors of the book joined us in the main store window to meet with readers and sign their copies of the book. One lady waited patiently before we began to be the very first customer. She’s been shopping at Boswells since 1975 and had two books signed, one for her and one for her daughter.


It was a wonderful opportunity to connect with some of our customers and hear their stories about the store. Another lady reminisced on getting the one daily bus to Oxford from Woodstock as a child for a shopping trip with her granny, Boswells sold a game called "Pass the Pig" which she remembers playing – and we still sell it now!


The toy department features in quite a few of the stories in The Boswells Connection. It’s not too late to get your own copy and read them for yourself, pick up a copy for our Gift Department or one of the till points today.


That’s not all that went on over the weekend; we had a magician in toys and competitions on all floors. Luggage had a map for customers to guess our holiday destination. One lucky man picked exactly right, we were dreaming of heading off to Malta. In the Lower Ground Floor we had a lucky dip of envelopes; it was one lady’s lucky day when she selected the winning one first thing in the morning!


We had a lot of fun, we hope you did too if you had a chance to join us. Make sure to keep an eye on our social media and website to hear of other events we have coming up!
