Crazy-Wicks moves into Market Place

Crazy-Wicks moved into their new shop today, just around the corner into Market Place.

As well as selling scented candles, fragrance lamps, Dream Catchers and chimes, Crazy-Wicks is also supplying original Daveys Locker products eg tights, stockings & under items.

Special guest Philip Solomon was invited to make the offical opening.

Philip said “This afternoon I was in my home town of Willenhall and very honoured to be asked to open Crazy Wicks shop in the Market Place for my good friend, Stuart Russell. It is situated where the old Davey Jones’ Locker shop operated for many years. You can get all your candles, dream catchers, New Age items and in another part of the shop they sell very nice clothes and other items too. I shall also be doing some of my readings and perhaps some workshops as well there in the near future. Do pop in and say hi to Stuart, his wife Carol and the rest of the team and may I wish them all success for the future.”

We are wish Stuart the best of luck.

Is it the end of Hootys as we know it?

Just paid a visit to Hootys, there is limited stock on the shelves and a very sombre atmosphere, definately not the normal Xmas spirit as in previous years.

One of the staff members who served me, told me that apparently they are not allowed to open any new boxes and that there are to be about 40 redundancies.

As I was leaving, there were signs of workmen, measuring up the carpark areas.

Also spoke to the burger van outside, who confirmed that they will be allowed to stay on site as alterations are made but thereafter nothing has been confirmed to them.
