News about the Dolls House Emporium showroom

27 December 2013

It has been a year of change here at The Dolls House Emporium, and we're now looking forward to helping you enjoy your hobby "to the max" in the coming days, months and years.

With the New Year comes one more change here at Dolls' House HQ.

Our showroom at Ripley will be closing its doors for the last time on 24th January as we complete our work to transfer to online shopping.

The business will continue online, by phone and by post - as always.

We already meet the bulk of our customers' needs via the internet and when you visit dollshouse.co.uk you can browse all of our products, download the new handbook free of charge and see all of the latest bargains and offers 24 hours a day.

You will still be able to get the usual help, advice and support from our customer service advisors - and place your orders as always - by calling 01332 912 989 and we look forward to helping you with your magical hobby into 2014 and beyond.

In the meantime, if you are able to visit the on-site showroom one last time, you'll be sure to find some very special offers as we empty the shelves... and some of our famous display houses may be available to buy too.

We’re open seven days a week, 10am-4pm, except for New Year's Day, when we have a little rest!
